Got me a new job today. Just development, but more money and likely more mobility. I start in a couple of weeks.
Felt pretty much like I wasn't going to go anywhere at my current job, though I liked the work. But you gotta feel like you're growing and making a difference. While my immediate management appreciated and encouraged my thinking, the management above didn't get me. No problem - I move on. And make about 1/3 more money.
I also expect that I'll get no hassles about my little web site here or my work on 247, both of which became issues, unfortunately...
Yesterday, I received a call from a friend of mine who is signed up here for the gated playground. That person too, who works for the same employer, was hassled about blogging. There was nothing threatening about that person's writing nor my own, and yet our blogs became an issue at work for us.
More reasons for me to fight very hard to make 247 successful and achieve the freedom to do as I wish. I don't want to be governed.
