LinkedIn PDF Button as a Resume, Sarcastic ecards, Writing Code for Obama, Cities & Ambition

The LinkedIn PDF Button is the New Resume – Another post supporting my theory of the impending extinction of MS Word resumes. The best line:

Finally, after many years of wondering how to go about that, an opportunity to dabble on the side has presented itself. The first step was to hand off a resume. Hrm. I don’t even keep a resume anymore. I mean, how can I? I’m the blog is the resume guy.

Cities and Ambition – Paul Graham’s new essay bodes well for my move to Boston. I like that Paul’s best writing has nothing to do with software. Plus he’s really, really smart.

PHP Developer Opening in Obama’s Campaign – Write software, change Washington. | ecards for when you care enough to hit send – Sarcastic and often hilarious ecards from one of the writers of the Onion.

Someecards has getting a fair amount of press due to the Onion connection and apparently raising some capital, but it’s not the best out there. It’s a ground rule double. Good, but just because it skipped over the wall, not because they drove the ball out of the park. The homerun in this space is They consistently drive the ball (er … joke … card, whatever) so far into uncomfortable and irreverent that you best not have been putting of a trip the bathroom before landing on the site …
