  • Mood:
I applied for a job at Akamai today. This may not seem such a big deal, but I applied for one of the Cambridge, MA, positions, not the SFBA positions. (I've applied for Akamai SFBA positions before, but never heard back from them.) I'm interested in the position, but I also want to test a theory I was told that not hiring older s/w engineers is primarily a SFBA thing. If at least I get some kind of callback from Akamai, that will be a positive.

If by some chance Akamai makes me an offer, and no one else (locally) does, I'd have to seriously consider taking the offer. I suppose I should give some thought to where I want to live if I move back to the Boston area.

On a related subject, I've been having dreams lately about being a grad student again. However, the dreams take place at MIT, not UCLA. In the dreams, I'm having discussions with my ugrad thesis advisor Dave Clark, who keeps telling me he needs to find me a project.

There's some other things I want to write about, but they'll have to wait for a while. My left shoulder is acting up. It's very frustrating. I don't understand why I have these problems. I caught myself slouching at the keyboard a bit, but it wasn't that long and I corrected my posture immediately. Maybe it is because I was typing for longer than I should have been. Or perhaps I'm feeling job search stress. But if I get a job, there will be times when I need to work at the keyboard for longish stretches. I need to figure out a way I can work productively without injuring myself.
