Experiment

I've been thinking about going to a blog model (cf. the journal model used at my Log O'Stuff) for a little while, so I figured, "WTF, Blogger is free." So here we are. Sign up took about two minutes and the UI appears to be quite easy.

This morning I sent off requests for basic info to a number of domain registrars with reseller programs. One of the larger registrars called me back in about a half hour.

Yesterday afternoon I had an interesting conversation with my boss. He off-handidly asked me what my career goals are now that I'm in my current position. I had to say I'm not sure. I certainly want to get involved with more hands-on stuff and build my technical skills, but there's a little voice in the back of my head saying I should do something with my legal background. Yeah, I'm 36 and still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

Dave,

I like your blog because it comes across more as a conversation than a journal. As such, it is more engaging and interesting to read.

Whether you continue to use Blogger or something else, keep up the good work.

You're 36 and want to know what you wanna be when you grow up?

After working as a professional soldier, failed entreprenure, failed bleeding edge computer educator, and successfully being a full time petty bureaucrat, I'm a government issue geek, in debt up to my posterior, and in danger of having my job contracted out to some young geek with a college debt to pay off who will work for $30 and no benefits as a paid contractor.

Career changes are like a pinball machine. Try chaos theory.

If "growing up" means doing the same-old same-old even if it's getting to be a bore, no thanks.

When I come to a fork in the road, I tend to take the one that looks a little different, rather than the one that looks familiar - I like seeing and doing new stuff, or doing old stuff in new ways.
