Subject: Re: Anyone looking for a Lisp/AI job in Pennsylvania? From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Mon, 11 Mar 2002 16:14:33 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Software Scavenger | In the past I used to interview applicants for C++ jobs, and found that | most of them did not actually know C++. These people were lying on their | resumes in the hope that they could learn on the job and not have to put | in the time to learn it on their own before applying. That attitude | won't work with Lisp. Lisp rewards work, by amplifying it. Those who | only pretend to work will seem even more full of hot air when talking | about Lisp than C++. So _this_ is the reason why Common Lisp does not win a huge market share. It has no commercial value to lie about knowing it _and_ people can tell that you are lying. How sad is that? /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none. In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
