AirNinja - Origins (Part 1)

I haven't blogged regularly since, oh, about 2004. Back then I was blogging a daily production diary for my feature length entertainment, Crooked Features.

For the past decade I've been busy in the trenches of Information Technology, being exposed to running a large - very, very large - private corporation.

So the time is coming when there will be a formal abend to my career at said large private corporation.

October 25th, 2014 to be be exact.

As a supporter of globalisation (the good kind, not the bomb-dropping kind) it would be hypocritical of me not to support my job going to India.

That's just it though isn't it? It's just a job.

Where is the passion? You can only bang your head against the silver haired ceiling so many times within a corporation before realising the person with real power to make your life exciting stares at you in the mirror.

All I needed was an opportunity.

Well, it's coming for me. October 2014.

Although it's not quite that simple, that is the best way to describe how the need arose for me to release my inner airninja, to take advantage of this "bad news" in the most taoist way. Good and Bad do not exist except in the Greek Dualist philosophies of Western culture. Philosophies do not necessarily translate to nuanced realities.

Shift happens.
