1 Yes, but look at all these openings in the helicopter tourism industry!  Guys, it pays really well, and the benefits are . . . *carefully reads disclaimer* . . . a shortage of commies?!  That's insane!  How can you have a shortage of commies?

2 A guy on a forum I read says there's one possible upside to this rent-a-cpu-feature thing:  right now, at the high end, there is a dizzying array of CPUs available.  He showed a table with about 15 suffixes, based on what features are in the silicon or not.  According to him, being able to cut that dizzying matrix down to a relatively few models, and then buy the additional features he wants may make his job easier--but apparently he is high up in IT for some really large organization.  Probably won't be as good for smaller companies.

3 Re: commies.  I saw an article (didn't read, just saw headline) yesterday saying Atlassian's ready to snap 'em up.

4 I doubt Atlassian would want a bunch of new high-priced Silicon Valley employees; maybe they'll just hire the ones in third-world countries that can be trained to cut-and-paste knowledgebase articles into customer support tickets.

Related, it sounds like Facebook will be releasing a few thousand as well, which, combined with all the other cuts and freezes, could do "interesting" things to the SV job market. Kind of glad I'm not there any more and living somewhere a lot cheaper...

5 The feds are actually pushing, IIRC, Air Mobility right now.

Targeting people moving in big cities. 

Anyway, my start up has pressing need to recruit ethical AI researchers, and several other areas that Musk has let go for some reason.

If you know anyone with certain affinities from Twitter, Google, Apple or Amazon, please direct them to Saint Rafal of Warsaw Aviation.

The Aussie dollar is in the toilet right now, making it very cheap to hire tech staff in Australia if your customers are based in the US and Europe.  Atlassian is doing a hiring push Australia-wide - about 50% of their staff works remotely so they're not limited to a couple of big expensive cities.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
