great video from Coudal Partners – worth 11 minutes of your time.

Best job title yet

Went to a meeting yesterday evening at CSWP and was introduced to someone with the best job title I've come across yet:

Social and Economic Renaissance Manager

Wow – what a job – to be responsible for a new Renaissance! The rediscovery of ancient knowledge, the search for a better today through the revival of some idealised past. Lets skim over the nepotism and corruptions blah blah blah.

This lead me to wonder what other significant historical events or artistis movements could lend some gravitas to job titles. For example:

The Baroque VC - elaborate and maybe over fussy but with a great sense of impact and "wow" factor.

The Gothic Head of Security – imposing and quite frankly bloody scary (i think we may actually have already appointed to this post…)

Pre-Raphelite Recruitment Officer – Tells you about your rejection in a whimiscal way that makes it seem not so bad.

Neo-Classicist Communications Director – Explains everything in confident, strident tones, perhaps clad only in a toga (actually, maybe not…)

Cubist Registrar – can really see issues from all angles

and my personal favourite

Surrealist Network Engineer – I asked for an IP address, he gave me a lobster

Peter Dunn has already declared his interest in the terms reformation (duh!) and counter-revolutionary (double duh!). The remainder of the whole of human history remains up for grabs.
