Startup recquires Stud !!! ??

Stud Programmer, Programming God , King Programmer : are the typical terminologies one encounters during his/her colleges days; describing any descent programmer. Ironically, many startups today use the same vocabulary to specify their recquirements. Here are some samples.

"Hot startup is looking for angel members with the following qualities.
You can talk Java/C++/Python 15.99 hrs a day and your colleagues consider you a stud hacker. You can dig undaunted into the most formidable code with nerves of steel and hack another digg over the weekend.

Sounds more like a recquirement for a porn movie.

"Wanted some one for Chief Technology Officer . Must be a technologist at heart and stud in contributing to technology."

Clearly shows the 'fresh out of college' mindsets of the founders. So are you that Fundu, Stud Programmer ??

Reading too light..
Here is a reference by paul graham's http://paulgraham.com/gba.html

I agree with you that it is tough to build a company just on technology and I bet the folks mentioned have either learned that or gone out of business by now. But the thing to appreciate is their passion and gut to start and to do something they think they can do. There would be few who succeed but that is what makes history.

We indians have gone into this lethargic mentality of curbing everything new and unseen. If you can't believe it, you can not do it.

Re: Reading too light..
I am probably replying this a little too late. But my point is that people who make such advertisments while looking for talent have no idea what it takes to make great software. Its not 1 stud programmer , it takes a team of talented people , with a lot of team work and mature processes to make a great software.

Not sure If I added you , But I am adding you now..
