Okay, we had a little fun on twitter today, just because we could.
Hmm. Maybe I should have the “guess where chuqui’s new job is?” game. Free print of one of my photos to the first person to guess
(that I haven’t already told, of course)
Upside: could have some fun. Might generate some buzz. Amusing to see the really silly suggestions.
Downside: ego totally crushed when I realize only two people care enough to play the game, and one is my mom.
And we had some fun with it. My favorite guess was a Microsoft Repair Shop. A number of people guessed Apple.
I actually did do a little exploring at Apple when I started looking around, including some positions open in the iPhone group. My friend on the inside looked at those positions and asked me “why are you considering that? you told me you wanted a life!” and that pretty much ended that. When I was there, I’d steer people away from certain organizations I knew to be rather gung-ho on schedules (shall we say), like the Apple online store folks. It’s never a bad idea to trust someone trying to protect you from yourself….
Now, I suppose I could drag this on for a while, but sooner or later, I’ll just piss everyone off. So I won’t. No real need, but it was fun having a ltitle fun.
So anyway, Friday the 13th is my last day at Laszlo, and starting on the 16th I’m going to become the Developer Community Manager at Palm, working with the new Pre phone SDK. I am absolutely jazzed, too, and can’t wait.
So how did this happen? Well, that gets complicated….
