I believe I first heard the term from Rudolph Langer--at that time a
programming manager, now editor-in-chief of Sybex Computer Books. He used it
to refer to what later came to be called "recruiters." Perhaps he made it
up, but he always used it matter-of-factly, as if it were a term of art.

I've always liked the term, despite its invitation to a derogatory
interpretation, but I've never heard anyone else use it. ...RM
