How Dreary the Day

Spoke to Joe today. His situation grows more dire. I have been looking for a position for him (UNIX admin or an entry level VB programming slot) but nothing is available in Seattle and nothing will be — Boeing is moving away, taking 4000 jobs and nobody is doing anything because of the glut of programmers. Silicon valley is in the same dire straits. The market elsewhere is rather flat as well. I will exert myself fully in the coming weeks and get something going for him. My network of students is still a couple hundred strong. They expand out to quite a few more. Doubtless someone will be able to point us to a strong market or a soft position (or both).

I am up and down alternating with increasing frequency. I'm pleased that my personal life is improving, and at the same time decry it's crappy nature.
