UK Trip


Family
Originally uploaded by taylorkydd.

Went back to the UK a week ago and had the best time. It was a flying visit - I left on the Thursday and came back on the Tuesday - but worth every second. Got to spend time with my family - so great to see the nephews and nieces. It’s a cliche but true - they are growing up so fast! You notice it so much more of course when you’re not there all the time. Really made me start thinking about when we will move back East. I know it’s still a few years away, but I look forward to being able to spend more time with family.

I also managed to have some good meetings. Hopefully something will come to fruition there….

So here I am, in the home office. Week 2 of life-post Yahoo! Will I say I should have done this years ago? Well… maybe. The truth of the matter is I’m realizing just how insular my life at the Y! was in the last few years, both in terms of how inevitable that is - working for a big company, but also in terms of keeping up with what’s going on online generally. I always thought of myself as pretty keyed-in to new technologies etc - but after talking to all these companies and VCs, representing both new media and old, I’m excited about the possibilities.

And I’m not just talking about the type of company, or the type of role, but the flexibility too. Being able to work some (or most) of the time from home is a very real option and with so much going on with the kids, just to be closer, and around makes a huge difference.

So I’m following everyone’s advice and trying not to jump into anything too soon. Am learning a ton, and meeting some very interesting folks. And to boot, when things happen at home - Oliver’s first poop in the potty for instance - I was there. I mean, here, I mean, how frickin’ cool is that?

PS To all of you who’ve been helping me along the way, Yahoo!s and non-Yahoo!s alike, thank you. Thank you for the introductions, the recommendations and the endless support. Couldn’t do it without you. And YTV team will be glad to hear I have made it through the first season of Friday Night Lights and I am well and truly hooked!

Suffice to say - I’ve still got no idea what’s next :)
