> His discussion of the kind of people they want, once you ignore the semantics, is interesting.

semantics == meaning. once you ignore what he's trying to say, the discussion ends, no?

edit: yes, i could care less about semantics of semantics, but i can't bring myself to it.

Whether 'developer' and 'engineer' really mean what he says they mean is a question of semantics. Getting bogged down in a discussion of the appropriate uses of said terms, however, ignores what he is trying to say.
