I found it also interesting that he is going to reconsider his career in spring 2008, because then PodTech is probably moving in another direction. On one hand he is 100% committed on the other hand he is already knowing when he is going to probably leave (or at least consider it)
It's always fun when people try to put things in your words that simply were not there. It does not mean I'm going to consider leaving. It means I am going to look at my career and think about it then. Just like every Microsoft employee is FORCED to do through employee reviews in the summer time.
I'm the most profitable employee at PodTech, so doubt they'd change direction away from what I'm doing.
