Good bye eSchool Consultants; Hello Curverider!

As of July 29th I began working for Curverider as a Core Engineer (awesome title, huh!).  Curverider is the UK-based trading company behind Elgg, an open source social networking application running awesome sites like Budokin, Brighton University’s Community, Eduspaces, and Fusefly.
