I’ve got a new job! This change has been in development for a while, and my first official day was last month, but due to prior vacation plans and such, I feel like I’m only really starting now.
I’m working for iNaturalist, which is now a part of California Academy of Sciences. iNat is a social network for nature lovers, where you can record your observations of nature and learn about nature. We’re making tools that help citizen scientists produce observations that we hope scientists can use to monitor changes in biodiversity.
I’ll be working on mobile apps for iNaturalist, starting with iOS but getting into Android as well.
Among other changes, I went from a 37.5 mile commute to a 1.4 mile commute. I can’t imagine I’ll do anything other than walk or bike to work from now on! :)
