    Contracting has been the game for a long period of time for a lot of people simply because its a very easy way to earn a lot of money. Now contracting may not be so profitable other ideas may take hold...
    Didn't mean you personally with the last question, I know you've been PlanB'ing for a while.

    Cloud computing is killing IT jobs especially contracting jobs.

    Only dev IT contract jobs have remained but there is now even more competition for dev work.

    Cloud computing is helping make everyone an employee of the new world order.

    My plan B of selling tin foil hats is doing very well though.

    Yes but you know what the problem is ? The radiation can get from below therefore making your hat a radiation container, totally reversing the intended effect. I bet you don't mention that on your advertising :P

    Same here, especially for clients in regulated markets.

    It may be killing the operations side of things but you still need people who understand it to assess the security implications and do your due diligence and risk management for you.

    No, it's not killing the operations market, but it is forcing Ops bods to re-skill quickly.

    And good Capacity/Demand and IT finance people will be able to name their own price shortly...

    Sorry.

    I've got more work since cloud computing came in.
