I am a venue frequency coordinator for a major sports league. This ruling is causing a LOT of worry for us. In a venue with 40 wideband channels for coaching, lots of OTA TV, plus the venue's own wireless mics, The little whitespace we have to work in now is getting awfully crowded. The notion of reserving two TV channels to work in at one of this league's games is absurd. We can only hope that we can ban the silly things from the entire premises out to the fence.

Comment Bypassing HR seems to work... (Score 3, Interesting) 207

My current boss put an ad on Craigslist which said send your CV and write a perl script that does [thing]. I did so. That turned into a 90-min. phone screen in which he grilled me technically, and then he set up an on-site interview. 5 people, 45 min. each, intense technical drilldown.

The hr person was annoyed that he'd gone to Craigslist (mgr. never told me to say otherwise...), but the mgr. found somebody who could do what he wanted.
