For many of the reasons you state, I became an independent. I have had plenty of repeat work, but change often enough to keep things fresh and challenging. Often, I stay no longer than one or two projects. It surprises more don't live this lifestyle considering the attrition.

Perhaps that depends upon where you are and your perspective. I am in Minneapolis/St. Paul. From my perspective, rates are low by historical standards, but the best I've seen in years. In the late 90's (I've been at this a long time), you could take the average annual rate, divide by 1000 and arrive at what you could expect for gigs demanding similar skills after brokers took their cut. The H1b program, which is essentially indentured servitude did have the effect large corporations wanted. I could talk about wages, rates and the abuse of H1b workers at length, but this is not the place for it.

Do you want to know a secret? GR8 US 2012 will be July 30 & 31 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, with a day of tutorials July 29. Unless Shaun beat me to the punch, this is the first public pronouncement. The call for proposals will be coming soon!
