A more light-hearted post: what are the chances of a JFP significantly lighter than last year? I hereby stipulate: ‘lighter’ means 90% or less of the total number of ads for last year in the October issue. For the record, the printed version had 267 job postings. A little math shows that what I’m asking is if the number will be 240 or less. Free drink at either the pacific or central (aka ‘the cool regional meetings’) from me for the first 5 winners!
