Burning Man and More

Filed under: Burning Man — maryparadox @ 5:53 pm

Lots to post and no time!

1. I got a new job! I am now a program manager at the same company I was already working for. Previously I was a computer engineer (programmer on embedded devices). Now I manage software projects, ensuring that they get done on time and to specification. More stress, but hopefully more interesting. Mostly I’m doing it because I wasn’t that great of an engineer but I suspect I could be great at this.

2. I’m off to the Ukraine tomorrow for work, then hitting Paris on the way back for a week. Peter is flying out to meet me and my coworker Adam. Adam’s girlfriend Kate will be flying out with Peter and we are renting an apartment in the city. Hopefully pictures to come.

3. I went to burning man! I posted the pictures to flickr but many people requested that they be kept private (I wonder why?!) I’ll just link to a couple here and if you want to see them all you can email me.
