Last week I traveled to Texas City to attend a training session. I was in Detriot awaiting my flight to Houston and I ran into Malavika. It turned out that she was on the same flight to Houston. (She was my first supervisor at Marathon Oil, and left to work for i2 3 years ago.) She is still at i2 and was surprised to hear that I was still working for MAP. On the flight I thought back recalling the exodus: Jeremy, Josh, Steve Z, Malavika, Dan… It was enjoyable thinking about corporate IT and my co-worker friends pre-SOX and pre-outsourcing.
