We all see the job listings on Dice where open source languages are more than keeping up with closed languages, as measured by number of jobs posted...
But here is a sign of how far things have come. Government and academic disciplines are seeing accelerated adoption as younger people, who grew up with FOSS as a fact of life, reach hiring positions...
Also, it would be cool if somebody in or near the group got to run a planetarium. 8)

Subject: [DOME-L:4662] Manage the Portable Universe I want to let the community know of an amazing opportunity to build and manage a new planetarium outreach program in Dallas. We are currently constructing the Perot Museum of Nature and Science which is scheduled to open in early 2013. Instead of a fixed planetarium, we have chosen to have a small fleet of portable, digital planetaria which will be more flexible and likely serve more of the community than would be possible with a single fixed dome- at a fraction of the cost. The museum is looking for a dynamic individual to build and manage this program. The ideal candidate will have a deep knowledge of astronomy and a philosophy of presenting truly interactive, audience led programs. Knowledge of the open-source planetarium program NIGHTSHADE would be valuable as we currently have a fleet of Digitarium projection systems. Most valuable is passion and a strong vision of how this program will benefit the community. The Following Opportunity is Posted at: Search Opportunities & Apply
