Point of order: Iím not beholden to anyone to restrict my answers to their particular logical paradigm or to their particular agenda in regards to a topic. Nor will I.
Thatís not how discussions work.

The reason I say this is that when I see something like "Job: Digital Assets Librarian", or " Job: Linked Data Technologist, Metadata at Stanford University", just to pick two at random, that's a good way for me (as a hiring manager) to see what new kinds of positions are being posted (as opposed to those I'm already familiar with), what new responsibilities they might entail, how a position might be pitched in a new way, or, as in the case of Stanford, what in particular they (as a leader in some of the sorts of things I care about) might be up to. At the very least it adds useful pieces to my current awareness in a convenient way, but it also has the potential of influencing how we define the next position we post here, and since we would like to hire from the community, it has potential benefit for the community as well. Of course, I'm speaking for myself, but in case this!
