Inspiration Complete – Please Close Door On Way Out

I was talking about inspiration the other day. Well, it works. It works so well in fact that it scares me.

There’s nothing greater than having a big idea, building it and seeing it come out right. It’s just great.

I showed it to my manager yesterday, who promptly realized that I could be writing myself out of a job. See, what I did was take all the thousands of lines to Tcl I have to write to create a search product and turned it into a bunch of configurable HTML tags. You have to love AOLserver. After pondering the fact that I could be creating the cause of my own demise, I realized that that’s OK. I’ve worked on Search for two and a half years. I’ve done pretty much everything I can do with it. And, there are lots of other stuff here that needs work. It may be time to take that next step and conquer a new geekMountain™.

What a great day.
