The First Day Of the Fiscal Cliff

I got news yesterday that my position will end Jan. 1.  The severance offer is generous, but of course limited in duration.

I immediately called an old colleague who may be able to line up some free-lance intellectual property work.

I have a small window to retool myself for the brave new world.  I'm thinking of returning to teaching and/or research for the longer haul.

Everything's on the table except the turkey.


  1. I'm sorry to hear this Bruce but you're already doing the what you ought to be doing to land right back on your feet. I'll be interested to see how you make this work out.

    Good luck!

  2. That bites. Sorry about that. If you need an old washed up tinker/tailor/sailor/spy to help you with your new venture, you have but to ask. I'm freeway close.

  3. Pete, Larry:

    Thanks guys, I will keep you in mind!
