I’ve been kind of loathe to make another post because I don’t want to knock the post about Jon Kincaid and his medical problems down the screen. However, unless I make this weblog a shrine to the big man, life must go on.
I’ll stay a little close to the vest about this subject, because I don’t want to be like the blogger who got fired from their contract job for posting about it. I have a new job, one that has me working in the Chicago Loop every day. It’s a contract position, for a Chicago based online travel company. I won’t use the company name in here, and I ask that no one does in the writebacks so that I can stay off of the Google radar on the subject. However, it shouldn’t be too hard to intuit what the company is. After nearly half a year of telecommuting, it’ll be different to get up and leave the house every day. Really the ideal situation would be to telecommute a few days of the week and go in a few at whatever the job is. Either one has its drawbacks, so if I could telecommute like Tuesdays and Thursdays, that would be perfect. You wouldn’t get so isolated, which is the big long term issue with permanent telecommuting, but you also get the advantage of sleeping later yet getting more work done some of the time.
