Time to get back to work. | August 23, 2006
Well, okay; I gave myself a week-long vacation, to recover from The Recent Unpleasantness (aka my last day job); but that's over, and it's time finally for me to get back to work on the important stuff.

Another week, another update, concerning the new internet start-up where I am second-in-charge, MetroProper.com. Today: first some lessons and plans on monetization; then a unique idea for setting up a senior management team; and then a little self-righteous ranting, because I am Jason Pettus, after all.
