Thanks for all the discussion. But here's another piece of the puzzle:

We may not be looking so much for someone who can write code as we are
looking for someone with a developer's attitude, understanding, and passion
for current and emerging technologies.

I hope it doesn't seem a little ignorant to suggest that a developer-type
might be better suited to this sort of mindset. I can say that, when asked,
none of the TW candidates I've spoken to had much if any knowledge or
interest in software being designed for the emerging web services layer of
the Internet, or what the next level after DNS will be, or location-based
services for cell phones, or how Enterprises will comply with government
regulations that allow individuals to have a say in how their personal data
is used ...

I'm hoping I'm dead wrong and that we'll get this candidate in here soon,
but so far we haven't.

I guess the question should have been: If you're looking for a communicator
who can understand and describe a community of highly-technical, emerging
technologies; speak with innovators and architects of these technologies;
and work with the developers of these technologies to explain things that
have not yet been created, let alone adopted, who are you looking for?
