And yet, people still ask you, "When are you going to get a real job?"
If Microsoft or Apple or IBM or GE or Kraft Foods or DowJones or United Airlines or CitiBank or Wells Fargo or (fill in the space here with even a local large firm) says so, everyone gives it so much weight. Where, as the case in AOL proved, these people have money to waste and they are the LAST people you should believe when they say, "This is the new new thing." They cannot be trusted.
