When I first started aworks in 2003, my biggest fear was Google never finding me. Many search hits later, I'm over that fear. My current concern is I will be overwhelmed with irrelevant email PR pitches.
Ok, to be honest and transparent here, my real fear is that after five+ years, I'm running out of interesting blog material.
Ok, to be truly honest and transparent, my real real fear is that the economy is about to tank and my day job will disappear and I will have too much time to find interesting things to blog about. As a constructive way to assuage such apprehensions, I just donated again to Open Left (Chris Bowers!, David Sirota!, Paul Rosenberg!). Recommended.
Now that I've got that out of the way, I'd like to mention a recent email that updates a discovery from last year, namely, Jessica Lurie.
I think I found out about Lurie via emusic (sorry, don't remember the recommender) but her jazz was fresh and new and interesting (and on my top ten as of September 2008).

By the way, if you know of anyone looking for a software development manager who specializes in engineering teams who build compilers, IDEs, embedded systems, Linux, RTL hardware IP, multi-core software, and/or multimedia and networking apps, I have an "email me" button at the top of this blog. Although that button is normally reserved for PR use, feel free to pass on any leads. Note also, said person has way too much experience working with remote teams eight or more time zones from California plus he successfully managed a guy in Oregon who also spent his days tending to his blueberry farm.
Just kidding (I hope)...
