I met guppiecat (Josh More) tonight. Unfortunately I'd forgotten his name when I got home, and Marissa had gone to bed. But I managed to locate his LinkedIn profile, although at this point it appears we are more than 3 hops apart. Josh draws a couple webcomics: Coyote Signs and Strained Geometries.
Josh suggested that Compellent, a local SAN company, might be a good place to work.
