Trading Places and Being There
reading saythiashi's (uh, you know) posts got me thinking it would be an interesting experiment to emulate the movies Trading Places and Being There by taking a random member of this board, or a guy off the street, and see how far up the IT power chain we could get him simply by passing him off as an expert or whatever. get him an article in The Server Side, quoted on Cnet, a blog on artima.com, a "consulting" gig with one of the big shops.
Now pulling off a scam like that would really get this forum onto the map....well once it had been pulled off, then uncovered for the fraud that it was...
What fraud? Big consultancies do it all the time IMO.
Yeh Smithee. Just what do you think an "expert" is.
Huh? Alan just described precisely the kind of person who moves up the corporate food chain.
