I have arrived in the “Live free or die” state, and I only wonder why I didn’t move up here sooner. My professional activities now include both the B2bSalesTalk blog, developing a product for sales people to use build their own digital presence, and I also do business development consulting for a fascinating company, IcoSystem . These folks are leading minds in the field of modeling human behavior, applying agent based modeling and other techniques to simulate and analyze human behavior in complex business settings as diverse as pharma, banking and web based marketing. I’m helping them develop business opportunities in financial services, and it’s fascinating work.
I’m still playing music and hope to be gigging in the Keene, NH area soon. As for writing, I continue to publish my libertarian political thoughts over at Libertarian Comment , but I have put away my fiction work for a while. I intend to revisit it later this year and am considering self-publishing, as I believe that my experience with a real “agent” and the publishing industry in general only proved that it’s a dinosaur in the process of collapsing on itself.
