Jobs are not Us

One of my freinds just e-mailed me to say that she'd been laid off. Another one of my freinds called me on the phone asking for some contact numbers... He's been out of work for about eight months. Needless to say, these freinds are in the same industry that I am and it's getting pretty ugly. While Bush yacks about the "Wall Street" recovery, thousands of people in my industry are loosing their jobs. There's a real good article in this month's issue of Wired magazine that presents the job migration to India from the perspectives of the Indian programmers and the "pissed-off" programmers in America.
