Unemployment is hip


Well now that there is much to write about the good times in technology, media, music and publishing, so everyone is writing about how miserable things are these days. Salon.com is featuring, “Fuckthatjob.com, currently making the rounds of the unemployed, provides a good window onto the dismal reality of the current tech job market.
