I came across your profile and I was interested in reaching out to you. I’m working on an interesting opportunity at VIPER (Video IP Engineering & Research-the “startup” darling of Comcast Technology and Product Division)-I’m looking for a Cloud Engineer for our Philadelphia office.
The VIPER team is a new, small and fast-moving team of world-class experts who are innovating in end-to-end video delivery. We look for smart people with a team mentality, that get things done and your profile and past experience caught my attention.

I would love to talk to you about this role and see if your background may be a great fit. Is there a time that we could set up to talk?
I wonder how long we’d need to talk about start-ups, darlings, the cable & internet package valued at $300/month, clouds, small fast moving world class experts, innovation, product divisions, divisions, what science and technology can do for comcast and my personal feelings about tv in the general sense (no ones fault, its genentic, but still, I especially have a lot of thoughts on the presense of televisions in public)?
cause after that we’d still need to go through what happened to that netflix deal in febuary, net neutrality, comcast, philadelphia, what happened to philadlphia’s municipal internet, mcdonalds, that $100,000 comcast spent lobbying against sick days here, comcast ‘start-ups’, why about 40% of people in the city dont have a computer & isp/the bullshit internet essentials program, comcast’s contract with philadelphia, where the citizens survey about that contract went in the month it was missing before it re-surfaced 2 weeks ago and still showed 26% of their customers here hate them, comcast’s nationwide multiyear lock on first place for worst customer service across all industries, blocking bit torrent & throttling, oligopolies incentive for collusion, and maybe a couple other things that might come up if i took a few minutes to think about it. i hope he has enough time to explain all that and still see if my background is a great fit.
tangentiality amusing to me: the dorneslife center/drexel community helping thing to establish/assuage gentrification/guilt had a ‘genuis bar’ last week for people from the neighborhood to get their computers fixed and was staffed in part by the 'Comcast Cares Tech Team’
i almost forgot their mailroom policy between moving out of
square’s 'security theater’ and opening the real mr sith staffed not-a-garage mailroom in the giant penis!
** i can ‘afford’ to be a dick because I know nothing about clouds, am (genetically) unable to hack an office job, 20 other things I’m not going into, and so dont have even the slightest chance of being hired. i dont begrudge anyone else their money. to a point.
