So the flurry of February has been followed by a most moribund month of March. The fact of the matter is that I’ve been pretty busy. I have left Online Business Systems and joined Solium Capital. My first day was today, and as first days go it was a good one. I’ve been thinking about leaving consulting for awhile, as despite a fair bit of effort there was never enough room for both generating billable hours and genuinely caring about software as a craft. I’m not saying I’ll never consult again, but next time will definitely be on my terms. Aside from getting a new gig, the family also took a relaxing Spring break trip to the coast (well, as relaxing as 24 hours in a car with a three and a five year old can be), so while I didn’t get a lot of posts written in March, I did get a lot done. Here’s to a more regular schedule as April gets going.
P.S. This is not an April Fool’s Day joke.
