More bad news

Got rejected from YCombinator. Again. Not a big surprise this time, but still disappointing. PG wrote back; apparently the problem is that the idea is kinda weak, not with the team per se (though I'm sure being a single founder didn't help).

Carl turned me down for cofounder. He doesn't think his skill set is really compatible with being a founder-level employee. That seems to be the story with a lot of my Amherst friends: they aren't really on startup-track careers. Also asked a former coworker from my last employer who's no longer at the company; he's got a new startup job that he's happy at, so no go there.

I launched a side-project that took about a week. Randomicity. It crawls the web and presents random sites to you. Launched it two days ago, but as far as I can tell, nobody likes it.

Still don't know what I'm going to do. In the near term, I wanna package up some of the open-source stuff I've done for Diffle/GameClay/Randomicity and release it, because it might be useful. Also looks impressive on a resume. After that, I dunno. GameClay is still quite compelling; I may want to finish it just for the sake of finishing it. OTOH, I seem to be the only one who thinks so. Maybe I'll just get a job at FriendFeed or some other Valley startup. Another former coworker offered me a job in his engineering department, but it's for Java (+ JavaScript), and I'm not so keen. Plus, I kinda feel like I need to get out of the Boston area.
