Susan Hired A Boss August 10, 2009 12:03 PM   Subscribe

Remember Susan? Looks like she's employed.

She hired these guys, and compares her new job to being a mini Robert Scoble. Let's just hope her new bosses don't care about accuracy, since she didn't quite get the Scoble link correct on her blog. And for the curious, yes, it appears her bosses have the requisite penises.

From the FAQ:

Do you produce SCORM?

No. SCORM is produced by ADL, a research group sponsored by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Rustici Software is an independent company that specializes in helping other companies become SCORM conformant.


Why am I imagining this being read by Troy McClure? I'm pretty sure there's either a Simpsons or Futurama quote along these lines.

He's apparently a Microsoft blogger. Based on his picture on wikipedia, he is a little thick around the middle, so mini might be good. You know, just for health reasons.

SCORM compliance is a relatively big deal in higher ed circles. A lot of vendors release either applications or course packs that have to adhere to a standard so it can either operate with, or be imported into Learning Management Systems (like Blackboard, Moodle, Sakai etc.).

Fairly big marketplace around it (including the open source community) which seems to be increasing every year.

That being said, I've never heard of Rustici. Nor do I care about Susan's little PR stunt. Best of luck to her, but outside of Vint Cerf, evangelist positions appear to filled with people that add a certain dash of panache to the company they work for with very little substance.

It's time for me to say it, "SCORM doesn't suck..."

I am a patient man. Slow to anger, slow to annoy. Frankly, some mistake my calm demeanor for apathy. But now they’ve done it. The folks on Twitter (and elsewhere in the community) have made enough comments about SCORM that I’m annoyed. That’s right, I’m actually a little irritated.


It helps if you read it out in this voice. Or this one.

BTW, SCORM does suck. Like a Hoover. Like -- oh, wait. Phone. "Hellph{#`%${%&`+'${`%&NO CARRIER"

Remember when Kirk fought that Scorm motherfucker? He kicked it in the crotch as I recall. Oh no, it was blocked. Anyway, point is, "Rustici" is scormian for "crotch."

MKUltra, not really. It's advertising, in a large sense, so enthusiasm, charisma, and endurance substitute nicely for credibility, related experience, and domain knowledge. The people who make evaluations of a product evangelist based on the latter set are a smaller fraction of the populace and generally do not need to be led about by the nose.

So, you could spend a great deal of time and effort finding someone of the latter sort and having to pay them quite a bit, or you can find someone who is merely sharp and can sell your crap.

Let me evangelize a bit about SCORM. It is your course's html pages and resources zipped with a stupid XML file that tries to tell in which order the student/trainee has to view them and conditions on when he can proceed. 'SCORM-player' is a CMS-system that can implement those conditions and play those sequences. The cleverest thing that the learning environment can do with SCORM metadata is to ignore it. Pedagogically, it is murder. No, no, no, it is murder. It's not succulent, tasty or kind. It's structure for no reason and structure for no reason is murder.

Wanna know what I'll bet? I’ll bet that every one of you is wondering what Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is!

I'm a no nuance kind of gal! (How can I keep innovation this good a secret when I'm busy being a dynamic, take charge achiever?) So let's have at it, as I always say (drumroll please!): SCORM (Sorry, tummy rumblers--it’s not a Scrumptious Scone with Scoops of Scream Scheese—but look on the bright side, it won’t ruin your appetite for supper!) just so happens to be none other than a collection of standards and specifications for web-based e-learning.

I spent ALL of last week trying to get a learning presentation I created to play well with the largely undocumented, hideously over-complex, buggy SCORM CMS a client uses. Jesus, just fucking kill me now if another SCORM project comes down the pipe.

It turns out I was up against a bug that "everyone knows about" but no one has bothered documenting or thought to fucking let me in on the party. Fucking scorm. Fuck it with something big and spiky.

In sum, FUCK SCORM.*

* In case you haven't picked up on it, I think SCORM is a fucking joke. Every once in awhile, randomly, the adlnet.gov web site goes down, usually presenting a "401 Authorization Required" user/password box...for their public-facing home page.

They carry free samples of Pepsi Blue on their persons wherever they go?

(When I was a teenager, they used to wear bikinis and wander around shopping centres handing out free packets of cigarettes. Nowadays they dress slightly more demurely, hang around in clubs, and try to convince you to buy the latest brand of alcopop...)

(Best related anecdote ever: my old boss and his drunken mates once dragged me along to a pub at lunchtime to ogle the scantily-clad lingerie girls promoting some booze or other. The place was packed literally shoulder-to-shoulder; an overhead view would have looked like a perfect demonstration of Brownian motion in a liquid.

And as I'm standing there, a callow youth trying to perve discretely at the T&A wiggling by and not spill his beer, I felt a silky arm slide over my left shoulder, a soft bustier-clad breast press against my side, and a cheery voice said "Hi, Rod!"

It was a girl I'd gone to school with...)

Being an evangelist for technical standards, while it may sound sexy when you place the emphasis on the word "evangelist," will be about as exciting as being an evangelist for stain-resistant fabric treatments. The boredom of the day to day grind will be crushing.

I hope they asked her to produce some actual ideas and marketing plans before they hired her on the vague (and really laughable) premise that she had a "superpower" called "getting things done." I hope her first set of meetings don't end in a bunch of Seth Godin babble and nothing concrete. Because it would be too bad if her bosses fired her (or, since she hired them, perhaps would that make her a quitter). Who knows.

I understand the reactions, to an extent -- marketers are e-e-eeeevil, amirite?!?, and she seems like a fairly typical gladhander/BS-spouter as these things go.

But I have to say I took some value from the "hire a boss" approach; it's nice to see somebody with the confidence (warranted or not) to actually value themselves as a commodity and ask not who she should work for, but who she wants to let hire her. I thought the approach was refreshing, and as much as there's a lot in that blog and her personal politics I don't care for, it's a good dynamic that puts some refreshing value on the employee.

So a kid that loves marketing and values... enthusiasm over content, is a charitable way to put it, I guess... has found herself a job working for some folks that are gung-ho about hiring her, feeling that she'll bring a lot to a company that does something technological and contorted and needs somebody to help explain and sell it to a broad audience, which -- judging from her blog and the responses to it, she does have some sort of talent for.

Let's all hate them.

And I get tired of web gimmick 2.0. Susan's site is no better than the weirdos that build epic altars of ego about themselves saying what they require in a mate. Yes, the honesty can be refreshing, but when you put it all out there...people are going to snark.

Her approach wasn't new. Someone does some attention whoring, gets attention. I'm not for or against this approach, but if your going to do your job search publicly, people are going to look at your resume and laugh. I find it best if only the people in HR do that when I look for employment.
