In reply to Keith Regan
Today there are thousands of unemployed IT professionals in each major city in the US midwest, plus more layoffs coming. IT positions that used to command a pretty decent wage ($40k+) are now being filled by 2-year tech school grads who think that 30k seems pretty good. H1B visas flooded the market with (admittedly bright) foreign IT workers during the last seven years making the market even tighter. In short: It's a terrible time for IT job hunting.

How important is a candidate's knowledge of technology in winning your vote?
Extremely -- technology is at the center of most of the world's big problems and solutions.
Very -- a candidate who doesn't understand technology can't relate to young people.
Somewhat -- a general understanding is sufficient.
Not very -- choosing good advisers is more important than direct knowledge.
Not at all -- technology is often a distraction from more important issues.
