Does FogCreek hire tech school grads\people with no experience?  Why or why not?

Not about the question, it's perfectly reasonably,  but I am anticipating the answers.

Fog Creek has like 5 employees.  I don't think you can learn much from an answer to this question.

It's not about learning.  It's, does FogCreek Software hire technical college employees.

Do you think the software FogCreek produces takes Yale graduates to make?  I don't.

I think it would perfectly feasible for FogCreek to hire a Tech School graduate.

FC hires smart people who get things done.
It's been covered several times before already.

According to this:

... there are only two criteria for working at FogCreek:

1) You're smart;
2) You get things done.

From reading other articles, other criteria include being a "superstar", not just a "great" programmer.

Now, I'm sure there could be some superstar programmers that are fresh out of school with no real-life experience, and I doubt they specifically exclude tech school grads.
