I’ve been a whiny bitch lately. Apologies to everyone who’s getting tired of it. Which is, I’m sure, most of you.

Had a couple of leads today – One good one, one OK one, and one cold-call from a recruiter in Charlotte. I’m hoping to get at least an interview out of the good one. The OK one won’t result in even a call, I don’t think, for a few weeks. The Charlotte thing is probably a no go.

If any of these three happen, it probably means I’ll have to reduce my role in TriLUG, if not step down as Chair. Quite honestly, that just means I do it a few months earlier than planned, and I now have motivation to make the legal changes so that the next chair can’t be a benevolent dictator, or worse, a not-so-benevolent dictator in perpetuity. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but now I need to get motivated.

Mostly because, as things are, if I sign the non-profit over to the wrong person, TriLUG, as we’ve known it, will cease to exist, and the not-so-benevolent dictator will be in charge, and will piss off a lot of people. I don’t want to see that. I’ve worked hard to correct the sins of my predecessors, and build some new bridges. The current vice-char has almost undone a lot of that work more than once with a single email. I’d really rather not leave someone like that in charge, you know?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    as a matter of protocol, if you step down as chair, that does mean what I think it means about vice-chair becoming chair, right? i think you see where this is going

    erm, nevermind – only parsed the first half of the post before responding.
