Story Behind The Song: "Love Song For The Ambitious"

This week's dispatch comes from Walt:

As the penultimate release of the Perennials project, I thought it might be fitting to include a song for the ambitious folks out there trying to balance their personal lives with their work. This dispatch is called "Love Song for the Ambitious."

Each of the JSS members contributing to the Perennials project have incredible "day" jobs that they're both excellent at and passionate about. I'm proud to be surrounded by such resourceful individuals who ably balance their many projects with grace and good will. By day, I manage a nonprofit that (among other things) provides a cloud platform for researchers looking to analyze large datasets in a wide variety of scientific disciplines.

This song is dedicated to my talented bandmates who've managed to release 51 out of 52 songs in a year, our loved ones who weathered the weekly storm close at our sides, and my stellar coworkers at the Laboratory for Advanced Computing and Open Data Group. Once the project is over, I'll be taking my first vacation in 10 years to Ireland ("far, far away") with my equally ambitious (and much more lovely) significant other.
