Back on April 8, 2006, I wrote about how I was tackling life after Sun:
First, information gathering. Iâ€™m going to talk to many colleagues â€” ex-Sun, still at Sun, never at Sun â€” about the state of the computer business: whoâ€™s hiring, whatâ€™s hot, and how they see things shifting between on-shore and off-shore, US and international, full-time and contract, in-house and consulting, and so forth. At this point, Iâ€™m trying to keep an open mind about almost everything. As part of this, Iâ€™m flying out to California for a few days at the end of the month.
And three years later this is what I’m doing again. I’m in the middle of two weeks of extensive discussions with friends, colleagues, and contacts here in the Seattle area; then on March 30th I’m flying down to SFO for a week of networking in Silicon Valley. If you’d like to get together while I’m down there, drop me a line….
