The Visions of Johanna

Ain't it just like the night to play tricks
when you're tryin' to be so quiet?
We sit here stranded, though we're all
doin' our best to deny it...
In this room, the heat pipes just cough.
The country music station plays soft,
But there's nothing really nothing to turn off.
Just Louise, and her lover so entwined,
And these visions, of Johanna, that conquer my mind.
Bob Dylan's girl has published a book. It be called: Hiring The Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets & Science Of Hiring Technical People.

She got a nice endorsement from Joel Spolsky, the founder of Fog Creek Software whose essay on interviewing I serialized on this blog. He writes: "This clear and comprehensive book joins Peopleware and The Mythical Man Month as must-reads for technical managers."

I'm impressed. And, for those who are interested, there's a vision of Johanna here. Though I don't have anything on Louise. Or her friend.
