[Seaside] Gemstone / Smalltalk Developer

RSS, is just another distraction mostly.  I don't use it.

Seriously, the Smalltalk market is so small that you can pretty much  
find all available ops in the US by watching vwnc, squeak, and getting  
onto Precision's mailing list.  I'm not really seeing a reason to  
change that.

The problem with websites is they tend to accumulate a lot of out of  
date listings and nobody cleans them up.

Name your price		Robert Half Technology	groups.google.com	From the  
posting on comp.lang.smalltalk: “...Name your price, but they
are looking for a senior level if not "expert" on smalltalk. They have
programmers that are working with it now and are familiar, but they
would like to have a very senior level person on staff. ...” 1/12/07

Is this really still open?  February 2007?  As time goes on these will  
accumulate like cruft and the resource gets less good.  I mean, try  
searching Monster or Dice for Smalltalk gigs - a lot of listings that  
are ancient pop up.

I prefer to see the fresh listings on the mailing list as they are  
posted.  I have a much higher success rate that way.  The same is true  
for scoring Cocoa jobs BTW.  I've scooped several decent gigs off the  
Cocoa developers list, but never connected on one that I found through  
conventional job postings.
