My soon-to-be-colleague, Gareth, reminded me via props that I haven't mentioned that I'm switching jobs. From Monday, I'm going to work for the government!
Having been impressed with alphagov earlier this year, I was more than happy to get onboard when the offer came up to work on the next phase of the project with a bunch of people I've known for years (and still apparently want to work with me), and a few new ones. We're being housed within a new department, to be known as the Government Digital Service.
Colour me excited (but maybe not orange?).
