I recently lost my job. I am looking for a new way to earn a living. I have a couple of leads right now and I am also reading a lot and hacking on some rails apps for some of the business ideas that I have had over the last few years. It feels good to get out of on my own. I am learning about some things that I have wanted to know about for quite some time. Some Erlang topics are really interesting me right now. It would be really nice to start a consulting firm. I have a feeling that jumping into a long term full time job is not the cards right now.
I had an idea for a documentary. It would follow a small software engineering firm from inception to consulting and producing a piece of software to trying to paid. All the things that small businesses have to deal with. It would cronical the times we live in. Our culture here is very enterprising and this where creative projects go from a concept to a real living thing. I dream that I could be the one who starts the company and filmmakers can just hang around and record everything. I would love to watch that kind of a movie. I was fascinated with the documentary, "The Staircase". I highly recommend this film. These are the best sort of movies, I think.
