Stumbled across the following job opening at Harpoon Brewery, and even though I don’t have the experience their looking for, I’m thinking about it. I could probably do it full time and do several consultant-styled software projects on the side. Dare I live that Dream? I think the main reason I wouldn’t do it is because I enjoy brewing as a hobby right now. When I was a kid I really liked playing with computers and playing the piano. I turned the computer hobby into a profession and now I don’t so much like it. I still do hobby computer stuff – but when I get something done I consider it a professional accomplishment instead of a personal one. I still enjoy playing the piano far more than playing with computers.
So dare I turn the home brewing hobby into a profession? Probably not… but I might just send a link to this blog post to harpoon.
