I'm in San Diego. I'm always on the lookout for contracts/jobs, either 
locally or telecommuting, and they seem to be very, very rare. The only 
viable opportunities I've found, I heard about privately from someone 
within the hiring organization. All I can think is that you have to have 
inside contacts who very selectively announce opportunities just to a few 
people that they know.

Maybe hirers aren't finding people, because they keep the opportunities so 
quiet. :/
