So what was the the gist of the academia talk? I wanted to go, but 30 hours without sleep is about my limit.

Gus, that sounds dangerously close to a stir caused by another, infamous U of C student (undergrad; he went to Duke Law) when he set up a website on which he called for applications from women who wished to date him. Surprisingly, he got quite a lot of applications, from what I understand.

Blogger isn't letting me use tags(grr), but the site's at www.tuckermax.com. Don't go there if you find boorish behavior offensive and distasteful (or if you dislike online poker site pop-ups).

The gist is to talk to Professor Job Placement :) She knows who to talk to and who's looking for what, or how succesfully to run the gauntlet if you're likely not likely in demand.

There was more; but I'd label much of it as proprietary. Drop me a mail, or hunt me down and I'll give you more.

Simultaneuous comment posting! Good to know that blogger's file locking and semaphores are working. But enough tech talk.

You really should have warned me just how bad that web site was! But it seems inapplicable. He starts right off by saying that he ``disregard[s] social norms." My entire purpose is to be occasionaly in compliance therewith. And his purpose was to satisfy a bet/dare; mine to contemplate market ineffeciency. Completely different, you see. And he's got short hair, and is cute; I've got long hair and make small children cry (true story; my former boss's kid ran away the first time she saw me). And I'm not asking for applications, I'm issuing a CFP, which is like an application, but backwards.

So it's completely different, you see.

Anyhow, I'll probably just pay someone to go with me. Cf. James's prior post.
