hi,
i know i have a lot of code on my github profile, but i'm just an
artist who happens to write code.
- i like leaking conversations to twitter: https://vimeo.com/87564506
- getting raided by the secret service at apple's request: https://vimeo.com/25958231
- playing games with online identity: http://www.socialroulette.net/
my website is more representative than my github profile: http://kylemcdonald.net/
if you have something that's more along these lines, please let me know!
thanks,
kyle

my typical response tends to follow along the lines of:

I don't grocery shop for no-price mystery meats. Please tell me the name of your client and salary range, Not interested w/o more info.

so far, responses from these recruiters tend to be along the lines of "that's funny..." to "your an asshole and you'll never get hired." i must be doing something right.
