Here's what Dave Kaiser has to say:
I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago. I will shortly, if all goes well, defend my dissertation on computational semantics and receive a Ph.D. from the departments of Linguistics and Slavic Languages and Literatures. Many students use webpages to express themselves, or to share their hobbies, or find a date, or whatever. I may work up to such things (OK, not the part about getting a date, my wife would disapprove), but for now, this exists for one purpose, to help me find a *job*. At this time, I am strongly leaning towards a job in industry, although if you work for a university and would like to offer me a nice gig as a post-doc, or better yet a tenure track job, I encourage you to make me an offer. You won’t be sorry
Dave's also hosting the Carnival of the Vanities next week at his blog, Blogo Slovo.
