New Job(s)!
I have a new job, or two!

Virsona, the Artificial Intelligence startup where I've been chief architecting for the past year, is going under. Some banks had promised us four more years of funding two years ago, but have since then realized that they don't have any money. So Virsona stopped paying all employees after Halloween.

Yesterday, I was offered a job at Democracy in Action, a non-profit that builds tools for other non-profits, about 1 mile from my home. They're epicurean, with a kegerator in the main room, but also a recent history of burning people out. The work might be too easy for me, but at least I'll be helping.

But for the rest of November, I'm working for a friend from Olin on a fun project for the new Droid phone. It looks like I'm finally going to get a PDA.

So, according to my googly map, you're up near Dupont Circle.

Indeeed-- Adams Morgan in particular. My area is a bit ethnic and transitional, right next to some of the hippest spots in town.

virsona.com still active

It seems like virsona.com still is working... are they still officially operating, or is the website just a shell of its former self? That would be strangely fitting, in an ironic sort of way.

haha, the company decided to evacuate with enough money to keep the servers running for a couple years, in case some new clients could be found.
