I moved out of the valley in 2007. At the time, my salary for a "principal technical writer" position (I was the sole writer/docs guru in a small networking start up) was $105k, and I was doing just fine with that. Someone who is still working there will have to say how the present job market and COL compares to 2007.

All -

I looked up Rent in South Bay (Sunnyvale, Cupertino, etc.) and a one
bedroom was 2.5 - 4k per month - OUCH!!

Given this, what rates does a contractor charge in the Bay - and what is a
reasonable FT Salary given the cost of living? Even 100+k a year sounds
like it would fall short . . . .
