On a first sweep through the career fair, it appeared the tech sector economy was improving: the selection of recruitment toys was nowhere near the giddy heights of February 2000, but there were some clever folding water bottles, a sprinkling of t-shirts and tote bags, and many nearly novel novelty keychains. On a second sweep, it became apparent that about quarter of the companies there were the government (including all the ones with clever folding water bottles or tote bags), and fully half were private contractors for the Department of Defense. D’oh!

By-the-bye, I promise this blog isn’t dead yet. It’s just resting; pining for the fjords, if you will. I’ll remember how to string two sentences together without putting hats on my letters or using the phrase “without loss of generality” and then you’ll see.
