FWS News Flash: Moving to AUSTIN!

For over the past two months, I've been interviewing with an medical construction company in Austin, Texas. Today, I was made an offer from the company to join them as the medical logistics coordinator for in-the-field clinics. This means that the place I've called home for 20 years, Dallas, will be changing to Austin at around the first part of March. How will this affect FWS? Austin is more centered around the Arts, creativity, and thinking outside the box. This could equate to expansion, but in the short term, it is going mean that FWS will be slower in output, due to learning a new job and me living down in Austin prior to my wife and child moving down after we sell the house. Of course, living on my own temporarily could mean that I more evening time to work on blogposts. With the new job comes more travel...and that will cut into writing and research. I do not predict that this temporary slowdown will not last muc beyond my first year at the new job. Overall, this is a good thing for me, my family, and FWS. Oddly, my new office will be right near Steve Jackson Games in south Austin.

  1. Bad ass, and welcome to Austin. I've been a reader of yours for a long time now. The traffic here is the main source of grief for residents, pretty much everything else is easy living.

    You should consider doing a lunch mixer at one of the local eateries... Kerbey Lane, or some such, as I know you have some readers here who would enjoy meeting you in person. Anyhow, enjoy the weather, scenery, atmosphere and eats, and try to ignore the ridiculous traffic.

  2. Good luck with the move. Austin is one of those places that I'd move to too, if only because SJG are there, and I'm a big fan of Ogre.

  4. Best of luck with the move. If at all possible, live and work on the same side of 45th Street; that will save you a lot of traffic headaches.
