I have to say that this was the most fun I’ve had online in a while. Some of the discussions were hilarious, and the impromptu webcasts and Twitter Spaces featuring key tech influencers who just had to join the fun were nothing short of spectacular.
That said, it’s amazing how much disinformation a small number of highly influential geeks can generate – especially as this is still going on, nearly a week after it got started.
I blame the fact that everyone involved could relate to the key point Joe Nash was trying to make: recruiting for technical roles is a completely broken process, and too subject to whims of fancy and hype cycles.
And, to be honest, it’s not the recruiters’ fault.
