Not really-really digital forensics related, but I found it very funny (and sadly true) and worth to be shared

I particularly liked

This is how most job ads sound nowadays

We’re looking for a person with more than 100 years of experience in software development, coding everything from BIOSes to cloud applications, knowledge of all past, present and future operating systems and setting up secure networks. The applicant must also be able to juggle up to twenty balls and read hieroglyphs, be fluent in Swahili and dance like Michael Jackson (especially moonwalking – nice to have at corporate Christmas parties).

That ad was inhumane, one of the reasons for this is that companies usually want to boast their workers skill set and show the competition what they can do, or pretend that they can do all that.

Recruiters seem to think that no one can see the difference - but we can.
