I'll be road tripping through Cali late Feb through mid March. Anyone care to meet up for a beer?

I’m leaving tomorrow and Cass won’t respond! Shameful.

Busy life is busy.

It's so cool you're doing this, man. Adventure time!

Aw damn. In my defense, you responded over a month later! My bad though, been busy traveling around for work and haven't kept an eye on the site.

Good to know you haven't been murdered by some crazy. =p

What kind of interview? For a job? Planning on staying in the US for good?

It's a startup accelerator that Cass indubitably hates, because startups are scams for most parties involved.
If you get in, you're in a fairly good place though re: connections and career.

Sounds exciting. Give it a go, man, figure out how it works first hand. Another cool story to tell. You can try a more conservative road later, you still young enough. You give it your all while it lasts, but limit the time of commitment. Basically, either you make it work in the next two or three years, and when you hit your thirties it's time to become serious about making a decent living whatever way is most reliable. You can keep trying alternate opportunities after-hours then and see if you can still jump from being a so called "corporate drone", or keep switching work places every 2 years to see if you catch a place with cool co-workers and atmosphere. You got options man, you figure this out.

I have nothing against YC. Been posting to HN for 7 years, actually. Pg is overrated, but I don't think he has much direct involvement at this point, and even if he did, overrated != bad. If you're still doing games, though, I'd consider their (YC's) inroads carefully before giving up equity. The closest thing to a successful gaming company they've had is Mino Monsters, last I checked. Actually I don't know that they've had any real success in general since ye olde days of Dropbox and Airbnb.

Can you tell me more about this? I can only guess YC means that Y-Combinator you were mentioning once, but I haven't looked more into it ever since. What is HN and Pg?

HN = hacker news
PG = paul graham

We dismantled our games company over 2 years ago. Instead I gathered a team for doing AI in agriculture.
California is a major agricultural hub so the location is nice too.
