I quit my job today

Posted By on November 9, 2004

I accepted a position at another firm, doing something completely different.

That said, in talking with my new boss, he expressed concern about some of my posts related to customers and hassles at work. He has a point. I tried to keep it as general and vague as possible, but that may not be general or vague enough. Since the internet has a long memory, this is not a good idea. There is even a name for being sacked because of things you said on the internet; it's called dooced.

Consequently, I will not be talking about work at all, excepting perhaps as a setting, such as “I was driving to a customer site today and saw the biggest ricer POS broken down on the side of the road”. Besides, no one wants to hear me bitch about work anyway.

So, my new job is a programming position with a wide and varied interesting bits. I think this is a good move for me. I'll be spending some time on Long Island, getting up to speed on the company, clients, etc., and so I will likely take the railroad into the city and poke around on the weekend, or something. I've never been to Manhattan, so I might take a walk about and see what's going on there.

Of course, political commentary, social commentary, talk about cars, and all that wonderfulness will be unaffected.
