Sleepless in Belconnen

Glad I won’t have to do this much longer – we got the cottage in Annandale! (Jules decided to wake up an hour after we went to bed, then when he finally settled it was only until 4. I got up at 4:30 – couldn’t sleep with a squirmy baby next to me – and by the time I had my shower he was asleep again. But now I’m waiting for my cab to the airport.

Lots of work for Dee and I this month. I’m in Sydney every week until the end of the month, by which time we hope we’ve got our own place over here and we can just do the move. My deployment here is going pretty well, in that I don’t feel like I’m drowning quite so much (except for the weather — lots of rain this morning, and looking that way for the rest of the week), but there is at least some chance that I’ll be working back in Canberra sooner or later — so the travel may not end just yet.

It’s Saturday morning on our last day in Melbourne. Both Dee and Jules are asleep, after our little boy’s 6am start, and I’ve just figured out that my newly-updated ICS (Android 4.0) can Bluetooth-tether — much more efficient/low-power than running a wifi hotspot, and since I’ve been having some battery “issues”, anything I can do there can only be a good thing. It feels like a long week, and a short one simultaneously.

A lot has been happening. So much, in fact, that I haven’t found the time (and energy) to document it — our “long way home” has taken an unexpected turn with a new job and life in Canberra. Let’s see if I can catch up on the last couple of months. So first, the job: Palantir. Named after the scrying stones (think “crystal ball”) of Tolkien’s hobbit mythology, we are a software company with an amazing knowledge management and analysis platform which has application in a number of industries: intelligence, military, finance, health, law-enforcement, more.

So, we’re well overdue an update. A lot has happened in the last couple of months, actually — let me explain and you might understand why I haven’t found time to post! In my last update I mentioned I was speaking with a potential employer: good news there, I have landed a job with Palantir, a Silicon Valley company based on a powerful intelligence-augmentation platform (or two!).
