Next Stop, Boston!

It appears that making our way back to California wasn’t in the cards this time around. In two and a half months I’ll be moving from New Haven to Boston. My wife got a rather prestigious job offer in Boston and given that it’s the #2 startup hub in the country it wasn’t too hard to convince me to move. I’m already scoping out a sweet apartment near the “T” (what they call their subway) a few miles from the “Hahbah” (what they call their harbor).

I guess it’s time to transition to another town; to learn the train system, roads, and locations of the grocery store, post office, and good places to eat. After 9 moves in 7 years we’re getting pretty good at it.

I’ll be attending user group meetings and entrepreneur meet-ups to break into the “scene,” so if you’re in the area I hope we can connect.

There are a lot of tech companies in Boston/Cambridge, as well as other companies (law firms, etc.) which need developers. Good luck on your job search.

Hey, do me a favor and post on how you move your tech stuff. I just did a modest 600 mile move back in January and it was a pain in the ass. My computers made it intact but then getting set back up, getting services, etc. was a real struggle. Of course I hadn’t moved in almost 7 years, so I was pretty entrenched. I’d love to know how you manage with all your moving.
