Dang, Dogen. Nice.

My little pleasure tonight was learning a song that I never got around to and finding out that it was insanely easy. Alice in Chains, Man in the Box.

Congrats Dogen!


My good news is a friend may teach me some basic accounting skills, to help the business my partner and I are starting. This is delightful because I have been trying to learn on my own, and it's really hard.

Other good news is we may have found a home for our old ugly couch.

I started my new company several months ago, and as expected, it has been slow to get going. New technology, no easy way to market it to the specialized scientists that would want it, etc. Had a few "dip the toe in" customers that want to see the results on a small project before going all in on a project (these run $5k to $50k, so very understandable. But I was paying rent, employee, equipment, and so the risk felt very real to my hard-earned money.

Took a vacation last week (family visit, so not really vacation). Each night I would check e-mail. Everything went berserk! In one week I booked $130k in sales! Lots of word-of-mouth, so it says the demand is there and I need to spend to reach people who are apparently ready to listen. Almost ready to quit my day job.
