New job

  • 19th Apr, 2007 at 11:59 PM

Today was my first day at my new job.

I've been pretty darn picky about what I want to do, so it took a long time to find one. But I think that Akoha and I are going to be a really good fit.

Of course, because I'm working for them, you know they're the good guys. The company is geared towards facilitating social change through sharing, which is something I'm really down with.

We're in a building that's about two minutes from my house, which is a lovely commute. The office is buzzing with start-up energy and everyone seems dedicated and practical. There's a team of brilliant hackers and people with business sense. I think we're going to go places.

I've got a new computer, which I spent the whole day setting up, and best of all I got to participate in an interview. Diving into the deep end is always an exciting experience, so we'll see how things go in the next week or so.

Wish me luck!

Sharing is good.

Isn't it though?

I love sharing and encouraging other people to share. That's because I often have things that other people need and the world has always been good enough to help me with the stuff that I need.

Paying it forward has always seemed to bring me good luck.

Wow, sounds cool.

Let me know if they need a novelist. :)

Your irreverent statement has kicked off wheels in my mind. I'm not sure we'd specifically need a novelist, but we might want to tell some stories. I'll definitely keep you in mind if something like that comes up.

Oh yeah, I ordered some of your novels recently. When they arrive in the mail, I might be knocking on your door for an autograph. :)

Any company that hires wranglers and ninjas is good in my book.

We seem to be lacking in pirates, robots, and monkeys, though.

Congratulations! I'd have applied there for a job myself, but I have no experience with Python.

Alas.

I highly recommend learning Python, though. I just started last week and it's a pretty cool language. It's definitely the preferred choice for scripting these days.

I am also curious!

In any case - kudos on the new hotness!

Sounds... deadly.

I suggest you instead have fun. Having fun doesn't have to involve killing... or so I'm told.
