I've blogged a bit about a presentation Chad Fowler made to XPWestMichiga two weeks back. There were several interesting points on marketing yourself and choosing a career in technology. Eventually, the talk will be on Google video and I'll link to it, but I am getting tired of waiting to post something.
In the mean time, there is an interview with Chad on perlcast.com which covers some of the main points; you can download it here.
