Stack Overflow Careers success stories?

(I'm not sure if meta is the right place for this. And I didn't see anything in the history on this specifically.)

Have you ever gotten a job offer/interview through Stack Overflow?

SO would seem like such a logical place to find an expert who might be open to a job offer.

Not that I'm looking (but I guess I'm always kind of looking), but just curious if anyone has been reached out to through their SO account.

It would be pretty cool to read a story like that.

My counter as far is 4 offers of which 2 were pretty serious, but I declined after all. Nothing has beated my current job yet. –  BalusC Sep 28 '11 at 16:16

If someone wanted to hire a user on StackOverflow, they'd probably do it through careers.stackoverflow.com where users are actually looking for employment.

Before careers existed, I think the only people to be hired through StackOverflow were actually hired by StackOverflow.
