This economy is making people crazy.
After five years of dedicated service to World Wide Web Communications, I was laid off on December 5th, 2008. (Just in time for the holiday season!) Crazy because I was the visible voice in the community. (Perhaps that was the wrong message?)
So far my friends and colleagues have been extremely supportive, which is testament to the concept of building your network before you need it.
It is time to reboot my career and start the next chapter. Wish me luck!
(P.S. If you know a web development company that needs someone like me, let me know!)
