Well, at this point, given my current (un)employment situation, I'd take almost anything. That, and I'm looking to shift my search patterns bigtime... more detial on that in a future diary entry.
As of right now tho, if I could pick and choose, I would be shooting for a combination of fun + challenging + cool people:
Pixar Animation Studios
Sierra (Or is it Origin? Or does EA own the lot of them now?)
City Hall (As mayor of San Francisco, the most insanely great city in all of the Americas, and possibly the world)
If I could somehow make a living working for/with DanceSafe, I'd do so.
I would like to have worked at Netscape; in the glory days before microsoft and aol decided they wanted to own the entire internet and teamed uo to gut Netscape.
Ditto with Be, but drop aol from the list of aggressors above.
I read somewhere that no employee of Oracle is ever more than thirty yards from a Starbucks-grade espresso station. Sweet, sweet caffeine!!!!
SGI would be pretty sweet; except for their location. Commuting on 101 is a fate I wouldn't wish on my ENEMIES.
The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. I just gotta admire a workplace that goes by an acronym that is pronounced "slack".
Loki would've been cool. Except that they're in LA. And they went bankrupt. Oh well.
Can't forget the childhood fantasies of rock star and astronaut. Although *I* would probably choose "Superstar DJ" over "Rock Star".
More realisticly, I plan, one day, to go back to school for a PhD, and become a professor. UC Berkeley would be ideal. UC Santa Cruz would also be kinda nice, but SC is too isolated from the rest of the Bay Area to top my list. If I were ever to change my mind about not wanting children, Stanford would be high on my list, so they could attend Palo Alto schools. Otherwise, Stanford is to stuffy, preppy, and yuppie for my tastes.
Imagine all the people...
