at this point, but Naomi Klein and friends (I’m guessing that the author “jesse” is longtime on- and offline activist Jesse Hirsch of tao.ca) have opened a Slash site based on her excellent book, NoLogo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies. It’ll be interesting to see if legitimate debate can grow, rather than just back and forth prompted by trolls.
website (that would be you) will notice a relative lack of updates, entries, and fabulous commentary. This of course is due to my new status as employed person, and the position looks like it will involve a great deal of work and effort, so this is likely to continue. As well, I hope and intend to set up an internal weblog at my new office to use as an instructional and communicative tool for the various interested parties, which will take some time and effort away from this one. But not too much, never fear.
Interspersed with this shift from un- to employment has been some lovely time spent with two Excellent Visitors. Of course, it being a tiny world, although we had never met, we have common acquaintances, and perhaps friends if you can count someone you have met once and read ever since a Friend (I think you can, but wouldn’t want to presume). The three of us enjoyed a lovely coffee and sandwich at a local cafe on Thursday, and then tonight we three added a fourth companion and went to Nantha’s, where we got the full treatment.
day of blissful unemployment. I’m excited about my new job, but it has been a nice vacation. And on to the next thing.
The next thing – this job I’m starting tomorrow – takes me into new turf. I’ve always worked on the indie/small-biz side of things. The new thing is with a huge company who will be looking to buy services from the sort of company that I used to work for. I wonder if they can adjust to a client who actually knows a thing or two, and has walked several miles in their shoes?
And last but certainly not least, major props to Ed Bilodeau [he’s on a weblogging break now, but you all know calebos.org] for originally putting me in touch with my soon-to-be boss.
