The Setup / Kieran Healy
"But even if TextMate 2 drops from the sky fully-formed and marveled at by all, Emacs will still be there, waiting. It will be there when the icecaps melt and the cities drown, when humanity destroys itself in fire and zombies, when the roaches finally achieve sentience, take over, and begin using computers themselves - at which point its various Ctrl-Meta key-chords will seem not merely satisfyingly ergonomic for the typical arthropod, but also direct evidence for the universe's Intelligent Design by some six-legged, multi-jointed God."

Flipping the Script on Recruiters — NPND :: No Pilots, No Demos
When a recruiter contacts you, ask them to sign up for YOUR mailing list. Email them when you're looking for your next gig. This is an interesting approach, especially for someone who's contracting. For a full-time employee it probably has less utility since you don't look for jobs as frequently.
