When did it become "old school" to hire programmers based on where they went to school?  I thought that was Joel's whole raison d'etre.

When did Joel ever say that you should base your hiring decisions based on where someone went to school?

I think he meant 'hiring on the basis of where they went to school, regardless of competence, grades, people skills or any other redeeming features'.
