The Cable Guy

Steven Kovar tells the story of Bill, a master carpenter contracting for Time Warner Cable:

As he works, he asks about my role at AppSumo and how long I've been in Austin-he tells me that he's from Louisiana and used to work as a master carpenter before the economy tanked, relying on his Army skills as a communication specialist to get his contracting job with Time Warner. I can tell he misses working with wood; there's a spark of life when he talks about the craftsmanship required to work on historical homes and making his stance on today's shoddy home builders known. Very quickly we're getting my modem plugged in and, after some tweaking with energy levels, we have a solid signal.
