I got to spend the first five months of this year working for an awesome start-up - Source Rail. The vagaries of start-up life mean that I've had to move on, and now I'm looking for another awesome gig.
Since several people have identified me at meet-ups as 'that swearing guy off of Twitter', I've put a little bit of blurb on theswearingrubyist.com. Please feel free to share it with anyone who needs a Rubyist, Linux sysadmin, or even an ops/support guy - as long as they also have a sense of humour about giant swearwords.
I've been unemployed for less than a week, and I've got a few leads already, which is awesome, but you never know how things will turn out, so if anyone out there can get me more options, I'd love to hear from you!
I'm going to be spending my now copious free time working on all those ideas for side projects I've had, reading a whole bunch of technical books, and, obviously, applying for every job I can find that's a good match for my skills.
