From 1999 to 2008, I taught 31 sections of 22 courses at seven different universities. I have also presented 23 conference papers and invited talks, have two books presently in development, and have published eight chapters or articles and 72 reference entries. I know that there are plenty of recent (is 2003 recent?) Ph.D.s out there with “entitlement” issues, but my record speaks for itself, despite not having been applied to a tenure-track position. 2009 is the first year since 1998 in which I will not have taught at least one course, and it is also the first year since 2000 in which I will not have earned at least $1800 doing professional choral singing. The result of all of the above has been (1) bankruptcy and (2) a new (i.e., actual) career direction into computer applications development.
