eBay is looking for network heavies...

Back in 2000 at Amazon, HR somehow decided to have me do the phone
interviews for neteng. I'd go through questions on routing and what not,
then at the end I would ask questions like, "Who was Jon Postel? Who is
Larry Wall? Who is Paul Vixie? What are layers 8 & 9? Explain the RTFM
protocol. What is NANOG?" Those answers (or long silences) told me more
about the candidate than most of the technical questions.
