What makes Matt worth noting ?
He's mildly ingratiating, sometimes merely diplomatic; and he shows the education and writing ability to articulate the practical consensus of his readers.
On the downside, he moves is blog every six months, to the American Prospect, Tapped, Atlantic, to ThinkProgress; maybe he should just park it on Xanga.

software engineering jobs seem to be concentrated in parts of
the U.S. where the cost of living is very high, e.g., Silicon Valley,
Boston, and Washington, DC. Finally the methods of software

imperative language such as C or Java) or 1970 (if you program in
SQL). This has made programmer careers more vulnerable to
offshoring than the careers of traditional engineers.
