Life in limbo

Last year, Silicon Valley was the heart of the endless boom. Today, it is the gullet of the vortex that is the U.S. economy. Salon magazine's "We're All Temps Now" examines how, in such conditions, contract workers (like me) get hit hard. Still, we have a portfolio of clients, unlike "permanent" employees, who when they get fired have to start from scratch.

Also in Salon on Wednesday was the biggest rave review of a PC video game (Black and White is its name) I've ever read. I have little time for games (my Nintendo 64 is on long-term loan), but it even prompted me to consider checking Black and White out.
