I *hope* it means that more people are recognizing technical writing
as a "core competency" that they want permanently in-house, rather
than something they leave to permatemps.

It's probably a bit of that, but also probably the fact that many tech
companies are recovering after a long slump, and long-postponed
permanent hiring opportunities are coming back online. Just a little
business cycle weirdness, in other words.
