What might be interesting to note is that my entire foray into Silicon Valley life came to fruition because of a post I read on Steven Garrity’s blog in August 2004 about Mozilla looking for volunteer designers. I replied, got pulled into their backend intranet doing design volunteer work, a few weeks later we pushed out Spread Firefox and the rest, as they say, is history.
So I’m just saying, this could be the opportunity that sets you off in whatever direction the fates have picked out for you.
P.S. And no, this doesn’t mean I’m starting a job board (heh). I’m just doin’ a favor for some friends.
