Tellme

Microsoft just bought Tellme for $800 million.

I work at NetApp. I hate my job. I spent all of February interviewing with one place that looked fantastic, but ultimately went nowhere.

I emailed Tellme to ask if they'd renew the job offer they made me last November. One that came with lots of stock options. For really interesting work. And a slew of reasons I knew I should have taken that job from day one.

Ten minutes later I read that Microsoft just bought Tellme for $800 million.

Which means I've just missed out on step three: Profit.

And I still hate my job.
