A New Job or Raise in Early 2010?

Are you tired of buying food in bulk, skipping vacations and driving around that old clunker because of the recession? Help may be on the way, says Forrester Research, which predicts that IT will pick up serious steam this winter.

Call 'em crazy, but analysts at Forrester actually believe we'll have a "tech-boom" next year. I just hope it's not like the tech boom we had this year. That turned out to be more of a kaboom -- as in, the market imploded!

What do you think? Will 2010 be a very good year, or will you still be buying food in bulk, skipping vacations and driving around that old clunker? Let us know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
