Decided not to
pursue founding a startup, but rather to look for a job. The
idea being that the economy is likely to be doing well again
by 2003, the government is likely to overstimulate, and that
therefore I wanted to hit the 2003 "window". This
means finding a company doing at least $10M/year so that it
can be well positioned by 2003.

out contact letters to recruiters, venture capitalists, and
executive contacts, to get the word out I'm looking for a position.
Got immediate responses on a Sunday from Bruce Dunlevie and
Philippe Kahn. There's a reason why these guys got ahead!
