I have a new job

In fact, I’ve had a new job since November 1st, but I’ve been quite busy and it’s taken me a while to find out what I can mention on my blog.

I am working as a producer at 10tacle Vienna, where I am working on a multi-user 3D online world developed in cooperation with MTV Germany. So I have been doing a lot of research into virtual worlds, MMOs, online games, server architectures, social networks, internet marketing… anything that is vaguely related. It’s a fascinating subject.

“But Jurie,” attentive readers might ask, “weren’t you skeptical about 10tacle back in May?”

Why yes, I was. But I’ve gotten to know the company a bit better since then. I’ve weighed the risks, and it seemed like a good idea to go and work with them.

What makes me particularly happy is that they specifically wanted me because of the broad range of areas I have worked in or know something about. I much prefer synthesizing across disciplines than being squeezed into a pre-defined box in an org chart, and in fact my current job description is quite different from the classical role of a producer. So I am getting paid for being an insufferable know-it-all! One step closer to my role model.

    @Diederik: Thanks.

    @Stephane: That doctor had nothing to do with 10tacle, but our future associate producer is going to give Jade Raymond a run for her money ;)
