For the past few weeks I've been trying to find a replacement
administrator for the Mac GPG Project. I'm glad to report that
Alexander Nouak, our current Webmaster, translation coordinator,
installer constructor, and generally all-hands person is going to
become the new administrator for the project.
I'm resigning for several reasons. Primarily, I'm burnt out. I just
don't have the motivation to do the job anymore. After three years of
dealing with the project on an almost daily basis, doing a lot of the
development and coordination, I'm spent of energy for the project.
Also, my interests have changed. I still think cryptography is
interesting and important, but as I move to graduate school I'm
focusing more of my time on research and less of it on producing
software for end users. The reading and writing I need to do for my
research interests is a lot of fun, but also time consuming, reducing
time for Mac GPG.
Finally, because of my time restraints and loss of enthusiasm, I felt
that continuing on as your administrator would be a disservice to the
project. You need someone more active, and I think Alexander fills
this role. I'm confident that he will take the project in exciting
I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has used the software.
It's gratifying to know that you can affect many people's lives,
helping them protect their privacy and, in some cases, their lives!
I'm very appreciative of all the support I've received over the years
from countless users who wrote in to say "thanks". Well, this is my
big thank you to everyone. You guys really are the best group of users
a developer could ask for.
Although I'm moving on, I'm sure this is not the last time I'll contact
some of you. Paths often converge unexpectedly and I look forward to
colliding with some of you in the future. :-)
So long, and thanks for all the crypts!
