The Future

Here is where I'm going to ramble on about the future. I need to come up with some words and stuff to put here which talk about what job I see myself doing and what technology I'd like to work with and learn. Right now it's just filler words but it should be filled in more once I get the flow right.

I'm thinking probably there should be a couple paragraphs, and they should be highly targeted at the job I'm applying for - basically restating my cover letter argument about why they should hire me.
