Distributed Time Zones
Possibly the major advantage of our relocating to San Francisco is the fact that our time zones become distributed. Take a look at Distributed Time Zones by Brion Vibber). While Brion touches on the round-the-clock access of developers and the wiki servers, it also bears that this will provide greater access, as Volunteer Coordinator to a wider range of users.
It may be that I'll have to stagger my own workweek somewhat, come in excrutiatingly early some days, while staying late others, in order that I may have access to the European as well as Asian communities. However, this also allows us the opportunity to expand our contacts and allow me to better relegation functions to community members across the globe.
I regret that this will put me at somewhat of a distance from our Europeans, although, the good news will be that my morning will be their evening; and most volunteer activity takes place during the evenings.
Anyway, I'm delighted to be moving to San Francisco, otherwise. 18 years in Florida is enough.
