  2. Hi David, I am just listing the jobs here as a service for people looking in Web 2.0. Unfortunately I have nothing to do with the selection process, otherwise I would give ALL the jobs ONLY to people who read my blog! 🙂 Why not contact Switch IT in Darlinghurst and chat with them?

    I did look at your blog, with the vain idea I could be helpful – but I can’t. I see you have a lot of .Net experience. I suggest you apply and see.

    I’m unaware of LBS in China – not to say there isn’t any. I mean, there’s a little, the industry was worth $2 million in 2005 and will hit $70 million in 2010 but that’s peanuts when you consider the population and the rest of the world – LBS in Europe in 2010 will hit $622 million and worldwide, 8 billion dollars. Email on its way. 🙂
