I just got a call from a to-remain-unnamed group at the MIT Media Lab to come up for an interview. I don't know whether I want to go, or whether this is the right group for me, but it makes me feel pretty good to know that they're into me. I think I'm going to go to Boston on Wednesday to talk to them - I'm worried they're going to try to steer me away from my core interests and more toward their own. We'll see when I talk to them. I think the key is for me to not downplay how much my core interest is in storytelling. They may like me, but that doesn't mean it's a good match.
Of course, the call I got came in just as I was getting out of bed and getting ready to shower, so I just did a 45-minute phone interview wearing only a towel. Oy.
