Few Words To Headhunters

Seems like having my CV online and my profiles on LinkedIn and

Linux, Google, Facebook, cloud computing, open source etc. has shocked us with solutions we hadn't even dreamed about. Still, I often hear (and use myself) this phrase: "it can't be done". This post is about trying to understand what is really hidden behind these words.
