I’ve had long-term correspondence with the folks over at Objectwave. They seem very cool. They’re a small Chicago consulting firm. Fairly high-level stuff. Some interesting product-ish tools give them leverage on their projects. They had a project they wanted to bring me in on, as a full-time employee of theirs. We’ve been back-and-forth about it for weeks. Didn’t work out with the client. Crap.
Not the first time that’s happened with them. I’d like to work with them. I guess it’s hard to close a deal these days. The hard part for me is the uncertainty: I’ve gotten to the point psychologically where I can stop filling the empty space with expectation, but I’m still uncomfortable with just not knowing.
Dammit, I need some work.
