Journal bildstorm's Journal: Madness of America

Well, here I am in Minneapolis. Been here a little over four months now, after completely giving up on living in the Baltimore/D.C. area.

The job market here is marginally better, but given the economy and the general mess that's been happening, well, it's hard to know when I'll have real work.

What really seems to screw me over is that I'm pretty talented, with no degree and a track record of dot-coms. So, despite that I want something a little more sedate, I don't get it. And despite being able to work with people in a people-oriented role, they'll usually slap a code-monkey in with the people skills of a goat before they'll put me in there.

This is my experience of America.

With any luck, I'll either grab a government job, or else head overseas soon.
