Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


y! not?

Day One at Y! headquarters was chock full of orienting and more orienting. And I think I'm in the right place. Free bus and light rail passes, complimentary lattes and mochas in every building, and a legendary "work/life blend." Yeah, this gig is going to be pretty cool.

One of the things I admire most about my summer employer is their commitment to the community. Not only is there a foundation run by a volunteer employee board, but the company matches donations dollar-for-dollar and encourages community service by giving employees time off to volunteer. Very, very cool.

(As an aside, I received the following email from our friends in Redmond last night. Apparently, nobody in Staffing passed the world along about the offer I declined...two months ago: We are excited that you have agreed to join Microsoft and help us achieve our mission: we work to help people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential. The following information about Microsoft's New Employee Orientation (NEO) program is provided to make your first days at Microsoft a valuable and rewarding experience.)

I celebrated the brief respite between Days One and Two by taking in a home game at AT&T Park. No homers for Bonds. But the Giants continued their hot play and beat the living crap out of the best team in the National League (the Gashouse Gang from Saint Louie).
