Flashing on the early Internet Boom

Duke: Can you believe this joker's resume?

Me: Ha. Not a hit. During the boom, though, a lemur with a copy of HTML for Dummies would get three competing offers.

Duke: No s***? Man, I graduated right when technology tanked. Nobody was getting hired.

Me: I remember one kid's resume...

"Objective: Web programming job downtown, walking distance from Vashon Island Ferry"

My boss, Nick, and I found it hilarious.

Yet, we called him. He was not able to get to Seattle for several days. Meanwhile, we looked over other resumes, but kept coming back to "ferry boy", as Nick fondly dubbed him.

Then one day, he just appeared.
