Departures: Seattle: Live

On December 18, 1998, I quit my job at Geoworks, an OS development company. I'd worked there for eight years. I had only a vague plan for the future: do some travelling and look for work when calmer.

It's pretty easy to arrange a trip to Seattle. Once the holidays had calmed down a bit, I headed on up.

If the chapter titles to this travelogue seem strange, I guess it's time I came clean: they're the names of tracks on an album by the Revolting Cocks. Some names match the contents of their chapters more or less. Others don't. This is one of the others.
