Re: About 12% on post to tech-write list
Oh, I just love it when the WSJ gets wind of an isolated incident, skews the
timeline a bit, and presents the story as current news! ...
"Agency" folks like the one described are dropping like flies in Silicon Valley,
unless they have locked in clients for multi-year contracts with people who just
get rolled over from PO to PO as time passes. ... But he'd be the exception, rather than the rule. And he wouldn't be placing tech writers. Or programmers for that matter.
... As little as a year ago, agencies were making fine money if they could find good
talent, perhaps as much as the Los Altos hotshot described above. But no longer.
