> ..are you sincerely interested in exploring ASD more? It sounds like a good company, good environment, interesting work. A great chance to get back to a smaller company. That said: ASD does... directories. It doesn't seem to be a high-reward sorta thing. Not a lotta geek cred to be earned with that. (Not that my current department provides much of that either; leaving the Wishlist hurt in that area). And I'm not really unhappy with amazon at the moment. Honestly, I'm torn. It sounds very interesting, but with the information I have at hand, not worth risking the move. I hate that it does, but it usually does: it comes down to the money. Even with its volatility, the stock adds a fair chunk to my income, and I can't ignore that. ASD would have to put forth a pretty significant offer to pull me out of what is a really fairly comfortable rut.
