Back After Long Break

I’ve been away from blogging for a while, and I’ll explain why in a later post. For better or worse, I’m back.


Getting Back From Business Travel

I have been traveling to interviews for the last few days, but I’m back and hope to offer commentary on the Google-YouTube acquisition and other matters shortly.

Time In Short Supply Lately

I’d like to blog more often, but my time is being consumed lately between consulting projects on one side and the search for permanent gainful employment on the other. One must keep the lights on, after all.

Still, I will get around to commenting on a few matters later this evening.

I get a little frustrated at times, because my preference is to provide substantive, thorough commentary rather than quick hits. Lately, however, as I spend more time looking for work, which entails researching prospective employers, I feel I’ve let the side down a little with respect to post quality.

Until my career situation is resolved, what I might do is err on the side of quality over quantity. I think that’s a healthy compromise.

No matter what happens, I do not intend to close this site down. A few people have expressed to me that they enjoy the material and want to see me continue providing it. For my part, I enjoy writing about industry developments because the process inherently involves having to think clearly and deeply about matters before articulating and communicating positions on them.

Missed A Couple Days

I was busy Wednesday, and I suffered from allergies and a cold yesterday. I should get around to posting some thoughts today.

Dog Days of Summer for Technology Industry

The last few days have seen an acute paucity of newsworthy developments and events, unless one likes to cover the industry’s Web 2.0 social scene. Perhaps everybody is having a final couple weeks of vacation before getting back to newsworthy endeavors.

Whatever the reason, meaningful news has been conspicuous by its absence.

Leaving Private Comments

It has come to my notice that some of you would like to leave private comments instead of comments that are published on the blog.

That’s okay with me.

If you want to provide a private comment on any of the blog items relating to acquisition rumors, stock-option backdating scandals, or any other subject, please feel free to do so. Just let me know, in the body of the comment, that you don’t want it to be made public. I will respectfully honor your wishes.

You can trust me to maintain the strictest confidentiality and privacy. That’s what I’ve done throughout my career, and I’m not about to stop now.

We will now return to regularly scheduled blogging.

Plenty Happening Today, Reports to Come

Well, today is offering a cornucopia of activity and events worthy of commentary. I have consulting engagements to which I must attend this morning, however, so look for my posts later today. Thanks for your patience.
