$250,000, Australia, and open source

Want to get paid well for a job in paradise? Here's your chance.

Unisys apparently wants someone to become its open source expert for Asia-Pacific, and is willing to pay a handsome price for it. $250,000 Australian dollars, which works out to roughly $240,000 US dollars.

Not bad for telling people how to give and use free software.

While Unisys won't confirm that it placed the advertisement, the odds of it being Accenture or another large consulting firm are somewhat remote. But then, so is the location. Imagine getting paid $250,000 to do a great job in a great location.

You know where to apply.... :-)
