You know folks.  I am beginning to think we have the title wrong.  We
need a people-person with technology skills and if we played our cards
right and worked with a few technical vender folks, we could probably do
a lot better.  Jack Lundy

The idea of a lousy technologist blacklist may have some merit.

	Gail, 

	You have my commiseration on this. I am now on Technologist #3
in 9 months. At least this time our technologist seems to be a good one.
Funny thing is that we passed him by twice and hired two qualified but
ultimately inappropriate people beforehand. If you email me directly,
I'll give you their names so you don't make the same mistake we did!
