Summer Gigs

I'm happy to report that after posting The good ol' Job Hunt last week, I had a prosperous week searching for my next gig. I got an offer from a local company in Denver on Tuesday and had 5 interviews on Thursday with various companies. I ended up accepting an offer from LinkedIn for a 3-month contract that starts in a few weeks (thanks for the hookup Brian!).

I also landed a 2-week contract that'll keep me occupied through the end of June. There's a nice week between the two gigs where we're heading to The Cabin for the 4th. I'm currently working on getting an "anchor desk" at the Hive Coorperative, but unfortunately won't be able to use it much in July. I'll be in Mountain View the first couple weeks, followed by Portland (for OSCON) at the end of the month.

Anyone out there interested in a tech meetup in Mountain View in July? My birthday is the 16th - maybe we could meet up around then?

Update: My first day at LinkedIn rocked.
