what?! how dare you accuse me of plagiarism? allow me to define plagiarism in my own words...

Plagiarism, as defined in the 1995 Random House Compact Unabridged Dictionary, is the "use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work."[1] Within academia, plagiarism by students, professors, or researchers is considered academic dishonesty or academic fraud and offenders are subject to academic censure, up to and including expulsion. In journalism, plagiarism is considered a breach of journalistic ethics, and reporters caught plagiarizing typically face disciplinary measures ranging from suspension to termination. Some individuals caught plagiarizing in academic or journalistic contexts claim that they plagiarized unintentionally, by failing to include quotations or give the appropriate citation. While plagiarism in scholarship and journalism has a centuries-old history, the development of the Internet, where articles appear as electronic text, has made the physical act of copying the work of others much easier, simply by copying and pasting text from one web page to another.

Great piece Kevin. I have a comment regarding your first item - Introduce Indentation Standards, and I'll try and be brief, but I have so many thoughts it's hard to contain myself.

My favorite form of indentaion standards are the clasic K&R style. It keeps the first opening brace on the same line as the control statement, indents the statements within the braces, and puts the closing brace on the same indentation level as the control statement (on a line of its own). Functions, however, are braced distinctly from statements; an opening function brace is placed on the line following the declaration, at the same indentation level as the declaration. This is because in the original C language, argument types needed to be declared on the subsequent line, whereas when no arguments were necessary, the opening brace would not appear in the same line with the function declaration. The opening brace for function declarations is an exception on the basic rule.

Yea, i mean, that's all

No, don't kiss my ass! Complimenting me on my physique is just making a factual observation. It shows me that you're very observant and perceptive.

Great post Kevin. I'd like to add two things:

1) In addition to doing some homework on us, show some passion about working with us.
2) Compliment me on my physique.

And if you only have enough time in your interview to do one of those two things, pick #2.
