I’ve finished up with the music technology gig. I was thinking about staying on in a full-time permanent job, but decided against it.

I now have a job lined up at an e-commerce company in Cool Springs (any local tech people reading this probably already know the company in question by that description, but I’m opting for search engine anonymity) and I start Monday. Some of my friends probably remember me talking about this company back in October when I was first approached for the job. It’s been a long road to making this decision, but now I’m psyched about getting back into e-commerce directly, and dealing with fun concepts again like navigation, conversion, web analytics, etc.

I’m not psyched about the long commute to shopping mall central. I plan for me and Karsten to test-drive a Prius and maybe some of 2007’s other hybrid models, and if we take the plunge on that, it’ll definitely be an extra expense we don’t really need, but I’d just feel much less bad about the environmental impact of the commute that way.

So now I’m spending the day with a big stack o’ library books refreshing my mind on e-commerce concepts and getting ready to hit the ground running on Monday.

Heck, I don’t even know yet what the zip code there is to use for my location tag. So much to do!

    Good luck with the new gig! (Oh, and tell your employer that the links on the front page of their website don’t work with a mac. 😉

    Huh! It works fine on mine (using Firefox). What browser are you using? Are you on 10.4?

    I tried it in Firefox and in Safari–same problem. I suppose I might have ended up visiting the wrong company, though I doubt it!

    Oh, it’s as much as excuse to see those gorgeous people as anything else. 🙂

    But yeah, I was trying to write up a very locked post to let non-local friends like you in on the details — it’s just taking sooooooo long to write. I may have something up by sometime next week. Maybe I just need to drink as I write it, so it’ll seem like having drinks with you. I’ll give that a try after 5 PM. 😉

    At least you’ll be going the opposite way of the traffic, right? I’m sure you’ll be wonderful at the new job..hope it’s a good fit for you.

    You’ll once again be the obvious of envy from this household if the K squared household is holding forth with a Prius.

    Good luck with all this..I’d love to know someday why you left the one you WERE with…but I’m guessing that’s for another day.

    Wow! Quel coincidence. And I now see from comments in your blog that several of your neighbors back there have blogs, themselves. Neat. Looks like I’ll be adding a few more RSS feeds to Google Reader.

    Is this the place that I used to work?

    You know the best part about Cool Springs? There is this great little used clothing store called Plato’s Closet 😉
