Thoughts on Antiquity, Patristics, putting things online, freedom of speech, information access, and more
On a visit to the Cranmer blog this evening, I was confronted with a confusing piece of advertising:
Now what does “Passionate about Ajax?” convey to your mind?
Is it this?
Or even this?
I fear that the IT recruitment company responsible might get some strange replies ….
Yes, I know what Ajax is, in IT terms; I work in the industry. But sometimes you just have to step back.
Oh I see, I didn’t realise you were IT industry like myself Roger!
I don’t know why someone would be “passionate” about such things. I could see that you could be passionate about delivering great interfaces to users with web technologies (for which you’d be using an AJAX library like jQuery) but I guess its to get the keyword in. Most recruiters in my experience are a very expensive keyword-matching service!
Your experience is mine with recruiters, and my inbox each morning testifies to that.
