- Hello Chris, Allan and Kris,
- I'm a senior architect / manager at a fortune 100 company that you've
- definitely heard of (but which I can't name) and earlier this year I
- was looking to add a couple of seasoned sysadmins to my team. One of
- my favorite interview questions is "How do you stay current on
- industry news, patches, security, products, etc?" because I've found
- that's one of the best indicators of technical passion which almost
- always maps directly to creativity and success here. Usually I hear
- Slashdot or Ars (decent answers, but not stand-outs) so I was floored
- when one guy said "A couple of podcasts like TechSNAP, BSD Now and the
- Linux Action Show from Jupi..." I actually cut him off there to save
- him the trouble of going into detail and instead we spent the next 15
- minutes talking about our favorite episodes and the nearly unlimited
- tips we've picked up you guys over the years. He was easily one of
- the most qualified applicants I've seen in years and, yes, we made him
- a very solid offer.
- Unfortunately right after that his wife got a can't-refuse job
- overseas so he had to decline the position and move.
- I don't have a question - I just wanted to let you and your audience
- know the value of your shows from an unusual angle.
