Shackleton the OSS explorer

Superhuman effort isn’t worth a damn unless it achieves results.”
Sir Ernest Shackleton

Whilst doing some other research, I just stumbled upon this job advertisement placed  by Sir Ernest Shackleton*

It seems that he was involved in OSS implementations as well as polar explorations! 🙂

PS. If you don’t know who Sir Ernest Shackleton was, you can check out his story here on Wikipedia.

* It seems that this oft-quoted advertisement may have never actually existed… along with the tooth fairy and Santa.
