If things are so bad, why are things looking good?
Offshoring accelerating, layoffs left and right, doom, gloom, oh me, oh my.
I'm starting to get nuisance email solicitations from recruiters again. My independent consultant friends are complaing that they've got too much work. Things generally seem to be hopping. Is it just me or is there a larger shift taking place?
Have things turned around in Silicon Valley? Has the tech market finally begun another up cycle? Is it a dead cat bounce? The quickening of the stream before plunging over the precipice?
My instinct tells me that something's up -- that currents are flowing below the surface. Whether that means a sea-change for the better, choppy sailing or a tsunami approaching over the horizon, I can't be sure. But I do believe that life in Silicon Valley is about to get interesting once again.
