	From the article that started this:

	Now if one is without a job, typically, you don't have that much
	survival time until homelessness occurs.  hence job hunting is

	Usenix provides a place for people to network and hear of opportunities,
	as well as brush up technical skills by listening to papers as well
	as attending tutorials.

	I believe this service is invaluable to the unemployed or soon

	I propose that Usenix offer a 50% discount to unemployed attendees.

	Pros:  It's socially responsible, it keeps people in the business and
		it won't cost much.

	Cons:  It creates a job hunting environment, it's hard to administer
		it may cost us revenue base.

Exactly how should I interpret this other than going job hunting?
It seems rather straightforward to me. Note the only reference
to learning "as well as"
