Ever heard of it? It’s on the other side of the river from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is voted the 2nd best city to live in Canada. It represents a significant bulk of the land in Canada’s National Capital Region. It used to be broken up into the separate cities Aylmer, Hull, Gatineau, and Masson-Angers.

And coincidentally, it is my new workplace at Cactus Commerce. I have just started as their Executive Vice President, playing a diverse role in the company’s operations (with a focus on engineering and the services business).

This shall be a big change in terms of geography and corporate culture (especially after 9.5 years at Microsoft split in two tours of duty) – but the people and problem domain are extremely familiar. Something certainly to give thanks for on US Thanksgiving – which I am not celebrating officially since I am now in Canada…

I think this shall indeed be fun! Stay tuned…
