Job Searching Comrades

You may have noticed that I haven't been blogging much. All I can think about is the crazy job market. And it's the one thing I really shouldn't be blogging about since I'm in it. Hence, silence.

But here's one thing I can say: It'd be great to commiserate with others out there! Of course, there's always the wiki, but it's never the same as actually meeting other folks. Plus, it's been wonderful meeting people from various departments as part of all of this - and I suspect the other applicants would also be interesting and exciting computer scientists to talk to. In this regard, I'm a bit jealous of the search committees who get to meet us all. To add to the discussion on our community's conferences going on at Michael's page, this is another reason that having more of a flagship conference might be nice.

Until then, feel free to comment here or email me separately to say hello online.
