OK, this InteropNet sign was just a joke (we think)

Spotted this handmade sign on the front of the InteropNet booth at the annual Interop Las Vegas event last week.

The show offerered tours of the awesome InteropNet network that runs the tech trade show, and those who assembled and supported the network were on hand to dispense a little advice to showgoers...for a very small price according to the Lucy-like sign shown here on the InteropNet booth.

Actually, salaries for tech and engineering pros are on the rise, according to Dice's numbers on 2012 vs 2011. And well, you can guess how healthy tech CEO pay packages are and we've confirmed it here.
