Back in New York, and it feels good. I thought I might miss Ithaca more than I do, but I feel somewhat at home in NYC after just a week or two. Both of my regular readers (You guys do still come, right?) may have noticed a new block of text at the top directing people to my consulting site. I have been doing enough consulting that I thought I would open up virtual shop in earnest. So if you know someone who needs a hand with their website, direct them to AmmonBrown.net. I will make their wildest dreams come true.
On another note, I was pondering my name today. It is so unique that anyone who wants to find me will. I was on Friendster for a while and I heard from people I had not heard from in years. They just randomly decided to pop the old moniker into the search function and I was one of the few Ammon Browns in the database. For that matter, I am the top result in Google for my own name. If anyone ever wonders what ever happened to that hilarious yet weird genius they once knew, I am just a few keystrokes away. I find myself wondering if I have ever said things on my blog that would shock some people. I am pretty sure that I have said some things that cast me is a questionable light with employers… but oh well. I actually talked to someone about a job I am interested in and he told me he had a good old time going through my blog for two hours. I got to wondering if that puts me at a professional disadvantage since they know considerably more about me than I do them or if it arms them with enough information to make a sound prequalification. I have to talk to a lot of people with the assumption that they already know me, because they do.
What a strange internet I live on. I love the way the web has shrunk my world while expanding my mind. Rock on!
