I Won Today's NextZOT!

Well, as you can see, I won today’s NextZOT!  I hate to brag, but this is the first time that I have ever won a large drawing like this.

I Won

Thanks to macZOT, I won a copy of MoneyWell, a really cool and easy to use budgeting application worth $39.99.  It was being offered by macZOT for 50% off at $19.99, but it looks like I got the best deal of the day.  Thanks, macZOT!

In a few days (or perhaps weeks), I’ll post more on my experiences with using MoneyWell to manage my complex budget.

Tom Joins RedMonk

After months of painful job searching, Tom has achieved what most people would consider to be a pipe dream.  The job of his dreams practically walked up and asked him to take it.  As far as I can tell, there was no searching involved with this one, just what appears to have been a kind-hearted request and probably an emphatic “Yes!”  Wouldn’t it be great if we could all be “chosen” by our dream jobs like that?

Commentary aside, Tom has joined RedMonk where he will be “an industry analyst covering Greentech, cleantech, Energy Demand Management and sustainability,” and it looks like he’ll be playing a big part in the future of GreenMonk.

When I first read this, I thought, “Wow, that’s the perfect job for anyone trying to live the difficult ‘popular Irish blogger and family man moving to Spain’ lifestyle!”  I’m sure that he’s thinking the same thing.  Congratulations, Tom!
