While you often spend a lot of time focused on getting a new job or landing that next client, all good things must come to an end at some point. It is important to remember that how you leave a job is just as important has how you start one. If you have problems at the end of a relationship, it can damage your reputation and your entire high-tech career.
As you probably know by now, I am a book lover. I read a lot of books and keep my local library busy requesting titles from other branches.
In an effort to feed my addiction, and promote their Reader software, Microsoft is giving away 3 best-selling eBook titles each week. You need to download, install and register the software, but then you are able to read these books on your desktop, laptop or Pocket PC computer.
This week's free books include, Candy & Me by Hillary Liftin, Last to Die by James Grippando and A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.
Check back next week for 3 new books.
A Perfect site for July 4th - Government Information Awareness
Based on the Total/Terrorism Information Awareness project floated a few months ago, MIT's Media Lab turns the data microscope inwards on the workings of the US Government.
An excellent resource!
