It figures that after nearly 3 weeks in Mongolia, the only person who was able to track me down was a recruiter. I was knocking back a pint of Chinggis Light getting ready to catch our flight out of Ulaan Bataar and suddenly my cell phone goes off.
It's a Kleiner-Perkins backed social networking startup looking for a CEO. They claim it's gonna be bigger than www.YakWhisperer.com. Heck it's gonna be the next Google. Or maybe Facebook is the next Google and this is gonna be the next Facebook.
It was clear the recruiter didn't really understand the business, blathering on the way he did. "That's why they need a guy like you." Before I could tell him I'd think about it, the call got dropped. Hey, sometimes AT&T does the right thing after all. Like total Schadenfreude Zeitgeist.
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...
Join us next week for a blues & BBQ adventure in Austin.
Or as they say in Mongolia: бурхан оршоо бутын чинээ сахал урга.
God bless you and may your mustache grow like brushwood.
