Just as you need someone behind the scenes to articulate the motions of a MuppetTM for the screen, you also need someone to sit behind a web site and get it to do stuff.
Adam Kinney was such a man (for the web thing - he has not, to my knowledge, except possibly at a few parties, ever been in control of a MuppetTM).
Adam toiled away for years in the Channel 9 boiler room, knocking pipes with his cyberwrench and other tools, all of which begin with "cyber" to indicate that I'm not really talking about a boiler room. It's a metaphor.
And now he's going. Not very far since his new job leaves him in the same building, in the same office, and so only about ten feet from where I sit, but now it feels like there's a great distance between us.
This is Adam's farewell.
We talked about life as a Channel 9 geek, life in his new shoes, his attempt at conducting business inside Second Life, and more.
For serious, we're going to miss Adam around here. That's going to be cheapened a bit by him still roaming the halls and waving, but we can still pretend he's gone.
Goodbye, Adam Kinney.
I'll see you tomorrow.
