As I’m soon to graduate and enter the jobs market I have read quite a few job adverts recently. This vacancy for a Linux sysadmin at Last FM really caught my eye, not only are they using Debian and Ubuntu but the job specification includes, “A preference for vi over emacs”.

I’m not quite sure why it matters what editor people use but it makes the advert memorable and means it’s likely to be talked about, ‘viral recruitment’ perhaps. I guess this post means that it worked.
