    I want a "CRM" system that's fundamentally organized around social 
media and the web.  I think a modern job search is centered pretty much 
around online job listings,   LinkedIn,  people you meet on twitter,  or 
who send you an email;  that's true if you're looking for an FT gig or 
if you're looking for contract work.  And I suspect that that's true for 
more and more of the hustling that other kinds of salespeople are doing too.
