Swimming with the Razorfishes

Wednesday, September 15, 2004

"Researchers at the University of Illinois in Chicago have confirmed what many high-tech workers have long suspected: The job market for technology experts remains bleak, years after the U.S. recession officially ended in late 2001."

"The nation's information technology industry lost 403,300 jobs between March 2001, when the recession began, and April of this year, the researchers found." [Seattle Post Intelligencer, via Slashdot]

Good. Let them go. So many God-awful software developers entered the market in the 90's. There are still too many people in the "IT" industry who are simply not qualified to be here. Attrition is good. Take your "Learn C in 24 Hours" and paper the walls of your trailer with it. I have work to do.


  • Not to mention all the halfassed self-described "web designers" who should have been working phone support at QVC. Now they are. Good riddance.
