So, I got hired by Cloudmade as a Regional Community Ambassador for the Northeast USA. It was our job to set up mapping parties in the cities in our regions, go attend the party, and help build a community of ambassadors. Didn't work. Was plain to me that we weren't meeting our goals through this method. I thought we had made a plan to do something different, but that didn't happen. Instead, management laid off nearly the whole team.
Anyway, I'm still not ready to go back to consulting, so I've got a few feelers out for jobs and am looking for more. Can do any sort of programming work, but am best in Python / Perl / PHP / C / x86 assembly.
