New Job at Metaweb
After about six months of working from home, I decided it was time to get a job in San Francisco where I could actually interact with people. As it turns out, the introvert lifestyle doesn’t really suit me.
I talked to a few different companies and in the end decided to take a job at Metaweb Technologies, a software company started by Danny Hillis that is developing a semantic data storage infrastructure for the web. There are a lot of tough data problems to solve there and I’m really excited about the problems, the people, the fact that I can walk there from my place and my new title, “Data Magnate”.
