Part of it is a judgement call. It's probably easier if you're
working in a well-defined area like I am (Linux). People in the
area are likely to know each other. You can ask around, and
people planning to stay in the area have to stay honest so that
they can continue to do business.
Otherwise, one useful site is eLance (www.elance.com).

"And now my burden, it gives me pain,
For my long-lost Franklin, I would cross the main,
Ten thousand pounds I would freely give
To say that on earth my Franklin do live."
- Traditional, "Lady Franklin's Dream"
