Amusing job post - UX researcher, mad SQL 2000 skillz required

This is almost as funny as the "interaction designer, must be a C++
expert" job posting that provoked a huge discussion on this list a
little while ago.

Coincidentally (or not?), this also comes from a recruiter working
with a certain large Redmond-based company.

link vs button

Hey gang -

Back in the day when there was a clear(er) delineation between "software" and "the web," the way most of us designed was to use buttons for actual actions or operations, and hyperlinks for opening or filtering a web page.

It seems to me like this is changing in our wild mashed-up world of web app fabulousity - lots of folks are designing apps where a hyperlink invokes an action (edit, add, send message, etc).

What do you say - are said designers committing heresy, or are they trailblazers?
