Five Years

February 17 was the fifth anniversary of my joining Apple.

My previous record for duration of service at any company was three and a half years, at Claritech. Before that, my longest durations were in school--four years at Stanford, another four at CMU. So not only is this a personal record for a job, it's also a personal record for time of work at any institution.

The service awards are being revised, which means that although I have gotten a very nice plaque, I have not gotten the shoddy pen that my boss got along with his plaque. I strive to bear up under the disappointment.

I did get an office party, though, which did more to warm my heart than a pen would have. I'm pretty happy.
