New York City; Grit and Grime

Watch out! It's a blog fly!Pando Daily [by Josh Miller]: “For now, I miss the grit and grime of New York. It is real and raw, and the commotion of the city is contagious. Startup life is characterized by constant motion and tenacious tinkering, not hikes on Mt. Tam and brunch in the Mission, and the pace of life and breadth of humanity in New York is invigorating. I like to tell people: New York is like coffee. You know it’s not good for you, and you don’t really like the taste, but you just can’t get enough. The rush, the jitters, they’re addicting, as are startups.”

I’d love to give New York City a try. I really would. I’ve heard from more than one person that the tech business in New York City is very different from business in San Francisco. I wouldn’t mind giving that a try.

This must be a mid-life crisis thing. I want to wonder around. I wish we could be completely mobile, move from city to city for the next five years. Could my lovely wife handle that kind of life? Probably not. Have I been trying to convince her we should try this? Absolutely.

I think they call it wanderlust. I definitely have it.
