I've redoubled my efforts to look for employment in the area of digital media. Looks like there are a few options here in the Portland OR area, although there has been a lot of consolidation. Other than that I'm mostly looking for more startup-type efforts that would be open to telecommuting, part-time or otherwise. I focused so much on keeping my salary in line last time I was looking that I might have sacrificed some other comforts... since then I've managed to pay off more debts and give myself some cushion, so I feel okay with sacrificing some salary in exchange for something more personally rewarding. I've found a couple of options - right now they only seem five or ten percent likely, but it's still a chance. We will see.

It's been a couple of interesting days thinking about open source. Other than the neat discussion over at slashdot regarding Rick Boucher's interest in open source, I had a thought-provoking run-in with a local businessman regarding open source. I wrote about it on my blog, which you can find here - it's under "Open Source Evil?"
