A whole new meaning for “executive search”…


So as some of you may recall, I have a variety of little scripts running against my server logs to pull out interesting little tidbits of information for my own amusement. I was perusing the output of these processes earlier this evening, and happened to notice that someone from this netblock…

NBC UNIVERSAL SAVV-S263745-5 (NET-64-210-199-0-1)

…had earlier today paid a visit to my Digital Content Executive Shuffle post from a few months back.

“That’s odd,” I thought, “I don’t remember trashing NBC Universal in that post.” My curiousity piqued, I went back to look at the post and sure enough — no trashing to be found. I shrugged and went on to other things.

A little while later I was catching up on the contents of my “bulk feeds” folder and came across an interesting post: NBC Universal is looking for a Director of Digital Product Development. “That’s odd,” I thought, “I just saw them in my server logs, looking at a post with ‘digital content executive’ in the title”. My curiosity piqued again, I dug into the server logs.

You learn something new every day. Today, for example, I learned that if you (or, say, an NBC Universal employee) do a Google search for the phrase “digital content executive”, five of the results on the first page are related to my post.

I guess they get points for using the InterWeb as they look for their digital rainmaker, but I really don’t think that’s what people mean when they talk about an “executive search.”

So. Am I on the short list, guys?
