in reply to Easiest city to find Perl work:

What? No Silicon Valley? You know, the tech center of the Universe. The place that has more tech jobs per capita than any place in America if not the world? Here, here's 27 perl jobs in Silicon Valley, more than any other place listed. Every day I get an email from Monster.com with anywhere from five to twenty perl jobs in the neighborhood. Oh yeah, and everyone's hiring right now. You do perl, you need a gig? San Jose.

    Ah well. It seems that nobody outside of California knows that San Jose is actually bigger than San Francisco. You probably got lumped in with San Francisco, along with Sebastopol, which is even further away on the other side. People outside of California also assume that Silicon Valley would naturally want to be associated with San Francisco. I haven't found that to be the case anywhere south of, say, Palo Alto, which seems to be the city that most wants to think of itself as in the middle, independent from both the San Jose and San Francisco spheres of influence.
