Am I employable in tech anymore?

I've been doing this for 30+ years.

I don't want to build web3, I don't want to be in the same room as crypto. I don't want to build a platform or a network or the next big anything at all.

I just want to build humble little apps that help some people and don't do anything skeevy.

Anyone hiring for something like that?

@readsteven fossjobs.net has opportunities like that. They are far in between, so might take a while to find one which you will enjoy, but it's better than sieving through a general-purpose jobs listings.

@readsteven I would expect lots of agencies to be interested. We do limited length projects for very different customers like universities, ngos and all manner of businesses.

@readsteven Same boat.

Maybe start your own thing? And direct your career with the technology and culture you want?

@dcid I've been doing that for most of my life. It was easier when I was younger. Now that I'm middle-aged with a family, there are a lot of risks that are harder to take. (Some are easier though too.)

I'm frankly just not a business person. I'm a Make Nice Things And Learn New Skills Along The Way person. Which is good, but not a business plan.
