I’m on the hunt for a design job in Houston. While looking at positions advertised online this morning I came across a job ad with a detailed list of job requirements (a good sign), with the title “Graphic Designer / Web Developer / Design Department Mgr”, or “a bit of everything” (a bad sign). Below is the list of skills this advertiser needs. Emphasis added is mine. Web Developer: Ability to code, build websites from scratch, overhaul existing sites, build forms, manage shopping cart, develop web solutions and work with databases.
Another great ad playing currently on USA TV! I’ve watched it maybe 10 times and it’s still great :)
No surprises here.[1. Streamyx is known to be a shitty internet service here in KL. It’s run by TM, Telekom Malaysia, in much the same way as Telecom was run in Oz back in the day: no competition, charge whatever you want, frustrating customer service — if you can call it that. It’s no surprise their customer service webpage looks like this]
I’m glad I don’t need to remember what it was I bought at the fruit shop.
So check it: Here is Nike.com’s current 404 page, and here is my original website from 2004. (Or click the image for a better comparison). Coincidence? :P
