Gig-less in Toronto

August 14th, 2002

My longtime steady gig has finally fallen prey to cutbacks, so I’m actively waving my shingle for pretty well the first time in 5 years. Since 1997 I’ve managed to keep myself busy with work – the steady 3-day/wk gig plus adhoc stuff to fill the rest. This year it’s steadily fallen off until now where even the piecework is beginning to be sparse. I know the need is still there, but finding someone to authorize budget for even the one-time things, much less willing to commit to an ongoing setup, is difficult at best.

I’m pretty confident that September will see people returning from holidays ready to make the decisions that will get projects rolling, so lets hope it all falls into place soon. Tim and I are also working on releasing BlogChat sometime in September.

You can find out what I do by visiting my business site and perusing my engagement history.

Of course, by this time next week I could be complaining about having too many projects on the go. That’s the nature of the beast.
