I’ve been getting a lot of questions from students recently about how I landed my sweet gig at Lab Zero, or, more generally, how I got into the industry in the first place. It’s really nothing out of the ordinary, but I thought I’d write it up here so I can cut down on repetition. (DRY… Continue reading How I Got Into the Web Development Industry
I have a job now and the mandated 30-day silence period has ended, so here’s this post! I was fired from Linden Lab last week. Basically, some goons were banned, other goons asked me why they were banned, I asked coworkers and attempted to discover in our internal issue tracking system why they were banned,… Continue reading Fired
It's been half a year since I updated my journal, so I thought I'd give a recap to those who've either been in the dark, or following me on Twitter and have as bad an attention span as I do when it comes to keeping track of what is actually happening with people's lives. In… Continue reading And then he got hit by a car
What have you been doing besides posting dumb links to Internet things and looking at pictures of yourself!!! Well as you can see from a few posts back, I now own a brand-new Toyota Prius. It just passed the 1k mile mark. I’m so proud. <:) I am totally tryin some of that hypermiling nonsense,… Continue reading Jeffrey come on!

I subscribe to the appropriate feeds on craigslist, but it’s pretty difficult because I have a schedule limitation. I’m still going to Israel. I… Continue reading I need work
Hello again from me; I am back in America after my two school quarters in Seattle. The road trip ended pleasantly with a viewing of Welcome Home, Jenny Sutter at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland. Ashland is a wonderful town and I totally want to return to it some time. It’s certainly got that… Continue reading Bears in the Area
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
Next quarter is academically weird. I’m only taking one three-credit class, and auditing another one. Overall, it’s 4 hours of instruction per week, and probably the same amount of outside-of-class work. That will leave me a LOT of time to do… something else, I guess. Hopefully get a job. But I’m having some second thoughts… Continue reading Should I do it.
This weekend, despite voting and gaming with friends and going shopping with other friends and attending a friend’s recital and friendsfriendsfriends I’m still feeling pretty neglected and lonely right now. Also I feel pretty incompetent because I bombed a midterm today and I’ve just been thinking about my path as a grad student and just… Continue reading Locked because employers are looking… (actually who cares – unlocked)
