Slate’s Interactive Job Loss map is so freaking cool and informative. It shows the job gains and losses over the last two and a half years. Notice how the Bay Area kept posting job gains until about August 2008? The losses really pile up in tech-heavy SF around November/December 2008. That about sums up my experience with incoming projects too. We were pretty busy through about August/September of 2008 and then things slowed waaay down. And, they’ve stayed slow. No wonder! Now I have the big red circle on the map to validate that I’m not alone.

Make sure to click over to Slate and interact with the map yourself!
