Canning floor

I just realized that in the personal hubbub of our lives, I forgot to celebrate the second anniversary of getting canned by InterTrust. I also forgot to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the bankruptcy of JStream back in February. I suppose in a way this is good, not obsessing with the failures of the past, but I like to at least commemorate them in silent remembrance. I wear my startup scars proudly, and I have the worthless stock certificates and bounced paychecks to prove it.

  1. I’ve never been one to wait for the guillotine to come sliding down to start looking for the basket. I like to be ready for the gory end when I can smell it coming. I did like the effect of showing up at the end, obviously having come directly from a job interview.
