The S4 is making me rethink my A4

I have been super happy with my 2003 Audi A4. In fact, it is the most enjoyable car I have had since my 67 Chevelle in high school. The same weekend I purchased the car, we found out we were pregnant with our first son, so I hesitated a little and opted out of the "S" version. Mostly this was in an effort to prove to my wife that as a father to be, that I could make reasonably mature decisions...

The S4 is haunting me each morning on my way to work. We usually meet up around Fall City, both of us creatures of habit. He usually shows me a few moves as we drop down into Issaquah, demonstrating superior accelleration. Did I say haunting??

websites of past


This site allowed me to view old Internet projects of mine that are long gone. How nostalgic...

"D" is for dog, Da Da

Twenty two months old and he starts naming letters on my shirt as I am changing his diaper... T - I - O - S - E - L - O. The "L" was particularly fun, he starts with the sound of an "A" and then rolls his tongue.

It is times like this that make me thankful that we have read more than 10 books a day to this boy religiously. He has an amazing vocabulary, about 50 to 75 words.

Still, Jackson continues to amaze me each and every day... although yesterday when he discovered the power of the word "NOW" when demanding things from his parents was a little disturbing!

He always charms his way back with a triumphant, "I DID it!" at even the smallest accomplishment.

what does it all mean?

Every so often I need to take a small step back and take a deep breath. The work we are doing at Jobster is a lot of fun- we are making solid progress with customers and I am constantly amazed at this team that we have assembled. Having spent some time with our WorkZoo founders makes me realize what a GREAT addition they will make to the team. I hear Mark will be running the Jobster Search team, a perfect place for him to continue on his WorkZoo vision within the context of the larger Jobster vision.

These last few weeks we saw record PR levels for our company based on a solid combination of events. More than progress in the space, I think the coverage showed our customers, partners, competitors, and professionals in general, that

1) Jobster is for real
2) Jobster is here for the long hall, not going anywhere
3) Jobster is quick to make moves when it makes sense for customers
4) Jobster will boldly help move this industry to the next evolution

If you have a chance to hear our CEO speak in the future- take the opportunity while you can.

in good company

a few weeks back i had an entry about my buddy B and his new company that had just received funding.

How funny that our breaking news today was coupled with news about his company, who is tightly linked the PlayNetwork? He has taken his future by the horns these last months and is making it happen on every front. Good for him.

great progress, great news

We are firing on all cylinders here at Jobster, poised for another Q of major feature releases to customers, signing some new companies, and showing them the Jobster vision.

Had to pinch myself today. My former boss's boss's boss joined our board today. John Conners, formerly CFO & CIO at Microsoft, has joined the Jobster team. Read more about it in Business Week.
