Cool developments with “New Job”

I had a meeting today with the “new job” since I was supposed to start back up this week. Kat and I had talked about me proposing that I just move to a contractor/pickup model with this gig. Best of both worlds: resources of a great consulting company plus the ability to do something other than program year in and year out.

Well – I proposed it and they apparently accepted. Details coming… but I think it’ll work something like this: they have a contact that needs heads and I fill one of those spots (on site).

This will, if everything works out, allow us to really concentrate on something other than the 9-5 grind, with most of the benefits of the 9-5 grind (stable company, more interesting projects, peer group, etc.). This could be pretty cool if everything works out.
