So, after 7 years, 7 months, and 21 days, I'm back to work (would be much cooler if it were 7 years, 7 months, and 7 days). Well, I've been working the past 18 months actually; but this is to say that I'm working for someone else again, as in employed. I'm working for Aha Media, Inc.
I'm happy to be working with two former co-workers, on a project that is new and exciting. I've avoided working for someone else, but the opportunity to get in on a new company so early, while it is still fun and free of corporate bureaucracy was too much to pass up. Of course it comes at the expense of putting my grand plans for Sand Ridge Labs on the back burner. Nothing comes for free. Then again, all my work over the past 18 months learning Rails is largely responsible for this opportunity presenting itself to me. This puts me in the rare position of being paid to do Rails development (although, I suspect it isn't quite that rare anymore).
Now if someone would hurry up and invent the Heisenberg compensator so that I didn't have to commute to the burbs...
