If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that I've been fairly quiet about what I've been working on for the past several months. There's a few good reasons for this, but mainly it's just because of how busy I've actually been.
In June 2011, I got an invitation to move to Brooklyn, NY and work as a volunteer at the World Headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses for a period of 3 months. Since this is something I applied for a while ago and have been working towards for as long as I can remember, I gladly accepted. At the end of those 3 months I was asked to stay another 3 months, then recently I was asked to stay for another year. Despite having to turn down some great offers and opportunities from some very interesting companies, I'm quite happy that I decided to stay here.
I'm working as a full-time developer on jw.org, a web-application with the purpose of distributing free, downloadable literature, and providing many other non-public facing, data-centric services. It's definitely exciting to work on a project of such large scale, serving over a quarter million uniques per day.
