I'm not sure how to respond to that, other than "it made me stop and think",
and "Yes, good point well made".

But it also made me think - that's not in London is it?
There seems to be a hiring frenzy at the moment. IIRC currently recruiting
are (at least) Net-A-Porter, Photobox, Venda, LOVEFiLM and

(or if it is London, then is there a difference between "companies who say
that they are recruiting" and those that actually *are*?)
