I got word a couple weeks ago that there will be no new features added to the Marlin site. That’s ok, it’s quite stable and the fact that Intertrust can manage it on their own and don’t need me is testament to how well Drupal works. Looking for work – it’s certainly harder than it was. The recession seems to be at the top of everyone’s mind. Fear seems so powerful that people cut back because they hear about others cutting back. Not a huge revelation but it seems that the economy does badly because the economy does badly. People seem so..I don’t know…influenceable.
In the past I had moved to where there was more work (Tokyo, San Francisco) – now that’s not an option as I am quite dug in and anyway, there aren’t any booming areas.
Maybe because we went fast and in a global, interconnected way into recession we will come out fast.
