OT: NothchUp

 NotchUp (a website that admits to being in Beta) provides a unique way 
for employers and candidates to connect: Instead of the company paying a 
recruiter a lot of money, the company actually pays the candidate to be 
interviewed (I assume MotchUp gets their pound of flesh, too). 

You can only sign up with an invite from a current member.  I have just 
received a flood of invites from my fans on this list, so I wanted to 
address this here.  I'm very intrigued by the concept, but I really 
don't like their TOS statement, and they don't even have a privacy 
statement, which is probably due to the fact that the TOS says they can 
share all information about you with anyone they want. 

I'm especially sensitive to this in the employment arena, because the 
wrong person submitting your resume to a company effectively blocks them 
from talking to anyone else about hiring you. 

So, thanks, but no thanks.
