I heard about the poker debacle - we need to get Russ out to ERE again, just to show people that Zoom's a poker machine :)

Sounds great, Slouch - get some sleep and drink a Red Bull with some Goody's headache powder :)
I'm hoping that some will see my question from a point of positivity - it's easy to think 'new ideas' (i.e. the bad word, "change") is a challenge to the 'old-guard', but I don't mean it that way. Perhaps a little spinkle of new (on top of the old) would be cool . . . I mean, of course not too much content from what seems like it's coming from a Mars Rover, but maybe half way (like a moon trip - not quite Mars, but a little bit out there so as to stimulate thought) :)

Souch, congrats on the charity raisings. That's good stuff. Hey, let me know something: is it better here to post in the 'forum' or in our blog? I already have a blog that my clients go to (sorry, but fellow recruiters don't pay the bills if you know what I mean!), but I can't RSS the posts over to here. Any thoughts?
P.S. One more question: the people on the featured area (top) of the page each day are the same we always see . . . I mean, they're cool, but where's the innovation and new blood? I'm burnt out on the same old stale-toast value props I see, meaning repetitive non-differentiated sales pitches and the same people competing in the same old shark-infested waters of "me-too" products. I'm just one person, but I'm with Einstein that "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Thoughts?

Hi Slouch,


First of all I would like to thank you for all your sincere effort by bringing all the Recruiter's under the same roof with this Recruiting Blog.

Let me invite you to pay a visit to my profile as well and to connect to my network on Recruiting Blogs.

I'm always open for professional networking especially in IT Staffing.

Some background on what I do.....

Technology Recruiter work with Direct Clients & Tier-I Vendor's for Temp(Contract) Positions.

I am looking at gaining assistance from connections who can supply me any Technology positions from their Direct Clients.

If I can ever be of assistance to you, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

There may not be any immediate need or opportunity for now for us to work together but I hope there will be one in the future, be it business or career opportunity.

I am sure we will find mutual benefit by being connected directly which will also enlarge both of our views of the greater Recruiting Blogs network.

I am looking forward to welcome you as my connection.

Let us start our relationship with my Firm Air Handshake.

Thanks in Advance.

Best Wishes,

Cool, will do. I just learned that I'm "boderline mentally retarded" through the Facebook 'verbal IQ test', so I better quit while I'm ahead.

Thanks, Slouch - actually, I was hoping to pipe here instead of vice-versa, but I'm open to whatever. I just learned via the "Do you deserve your high school diploma" quiz on Facebook that I scored an 80%, barely passing. Wow :) Delete Comment

Slouch, hey hook me up - how do I RSS feed this to my blog or the one I write for Fast Company?

Hey, btw, this site acts oddly with loading pages on both my IE, Opera, and Firefox . . . do you hear that often?

Funny you should mention that about John! He was on the green team... the black team ended up beating his team in the TUG O' WAR to win the Accololympics! John was probably off behind a trying consoling himself! I will let him know you say hello - he is a great guy! Look forward to connecting with you more and more in the days ahead!
