Continuing Worklife… And the Beat Goes On

At aforementioned lunch with boss, I was reassured that we’re all sitting on our hands waiting for the FCC to approve the merger between Cingular and AT&T that went down earlier this year.

When that happens, telecommunications work should absolutely explode – next year is gonna be a bitch, and you better bet that I’m going to be asking for a raise. We’re bidding on a ton of work, and as it’s common knowledge that Cingular’s going to be doing integration AND upgrading at the same time, I’ll just point that out here. Read: LOTS OF WORK. Combine the Cingular sites with AT&T sites, and you get 30,000 cell phone tower sites ready for upgrading… and a bunch of smaller carriers in the wings who’ll have to follow suit if they want to remain competitive.

So until the FCC approves the deal (and they have another 85 day period in which to do so), I will continue to remain here, sitting on my hands, reading, War in the Shadows: The Guerrilla in History, and writing novels.

And blogging.

It’s a living.
