Well I think my thoughts are pretty clear but I don't see this as
advertising at all. I see it as a description of culture within a
company that is posting a job opportunity. It doesn't read like
advertising. It is all mindset and knowing Theo, he is sincere in his

The trend for blogs is that it is becoming the central point of
communication for whoever is writing the blog. It is becoming
increasingly common to have "company" or "project" blogs as well, where
it is not singular but an aggregate of information.
In short, blogging is becoming the nature of press releases, news,
opinions etc... all in one. Exactly how many barriers are we going to
put up for our community (Theo is a member of our Community and OmniTI
is a sponsor) and sponsors to communicate?
