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.
