Maybe its resolution time. In this first burst of 2006 and more than a few big times bloggers are hanging out their “will blog for _______ signs” or going indy. In a long tangent to a post by Will Richardson on “Reinventing Ourselves, Stephen Downes lets loose his desire for a new venue. So long Monkton?
I wander the world and talk web standards to everyone I meet.
I’m really good at it. I can teach CSS. And HTML and XHTML too. I can tell you why they matter. I can fix your problems, I can make you more efficient.
I need your help. I need 20k per month. I work really hard, I’ll be where you need me to be. And I’m really, really good. I need a change! Please, make an offer.
Wowzers! 20,000 clams a month! That’s a lot of milk bones. Plus health bennies! I’d do it for less than that (but my hair is not nearly as cool)
And Cory Doctorow quit his day job to have time to write.
What’s goin’ on? Maybe it’s time to brush the crumbs off the resume…
