So I didn't get my act together in time today to do mock interviews, but
I'll be at noisebridge wednesday, 10/28, from 5pm till 9pm. Hopefully
that's a wide enough timeslot that everybody who wants to make it can.
If anybody is interested in interviewing or being interviewed, please
show up somewhere in that window with a few copies of your resume and
maybe a printout of some postings you thought you'd like to apply for.
