Remember when I said we're serious about RSS?

Good, because we're looking for a good RSS hacker with some large systems and scaling experience to help with our RSS backend systems (aka, our "content aggregation platform"). Here are some tidbits from the official job listing.

Ideally, we're looking for someone with solid experience in:

  • large-scale distributed databases
  • caching system design
  • distributed systems
  • designing with security, reliability, and resilience in mind
  • C++, Perl, Unix, Apache

And, of course, it's best if you like RSS and syndication technologies. We're bringing RSS to the masses and need your help. We have big plans for content syndication.

If you've got experience with Web Services, FreeBSD, and Internationalization that's even better.

If you're interested, send your resume in text, PDF, or HTML to and put "RSS Engineer" in the subject. Send along your blog URL too. You've got one, right? :-)

The job is on-site in Sunnyvale, California. Relocation assistance is available.

Either that or you could work for Rojo!

1. We're in San Francisco and not in Sunnyvale.

2. We're a fast, nible startup! ;)

3. We're Java and Unix not C++ and Unix (yuk)

4. If you work for Rojo then I'll be able to tease Jeremy that I'm using his blog as tech recruiting service!

5. We pay too!

Or you could work for the people - and help us create an "open source infrastructure" which will standardize around new kinds of micro-content.

No money.

Lots of new friends.

Definitely will get you into heaven.

Hello fellow bloggers. I'm in need of some help and I'm hopeing you my fellow Americans will help. Two years ago I was a truck driver. My father came down with lung cancer and I chose to get off the road and move back home to help take of my Dad and I took a job localy. Since then my father has passed away and my short term job ended. Last October I was diagnosed with a spot on the lung and was given a short time to live however they could not say it was cancer till the removed the tumber. So on Novermber 23rd of last year I went to surgery. The good news was that I did not have cancer. I had Blastomycosis which is a lung fungas. Well it is curably and I'm doing prety good today.

What I want to do is buy my own truck. My credit is fair and I can get a loan but I'm in need of the down payment. The truck I'm buying is a $40,000.00 truck and I want to go to work for a trucking company as an indepentant driver. My down payment is $6,000.00 plus plates and all the cost to get it ready for OTR driving is another $10,000.00.

So what I need is a loan for not more then $10,000.00. Either from one person or a multiply of people to equal $10,000.00. I am willing to pay 12% per year simple intrest over 2 years. I would take the money that you loan to me and pay you back in 24 equal monthly payments of 516.66. This would be for the whole amount of 10K. If you loaned me 1000.00 the monthly payment would be 51.66 for two years.

I am posting my email address and if you are intrested in helping me with my loan needs and to ask any questions you may have. I will give you all my personal info and sign a simple loan agreement with you with the terms as described above. My email is

Please copy this and pass this along in your blogs so I can find enough people to help me.

Thank You for any concideration.
