I may have to move my family to Texas. Nice in winter, but the summers can be tough.

A very taxing state
Interesting that these states have business friendly governments. Also Texas and Florida do not have state income tax which is certainly an incentive to move there. In NY the governor is up for re-election so we are getting loads of propaganda about how business friendly things have become. The reality is that NY is tax and regulation hell and things are not getting better here with so many New Yorkers moving to the states mentioned in this article. People realize that the in your face government which panders to the unions and welfare are a lost cause.

Re: A very taxing state
5 states out of 50 for IT job growth? That's awful. Show's that the US economy is still in the dumper, if only 5 states show significant growth in the technology field. It should be true in all 50 states. How sad.

Re: A very taxing state
Reading comprehension is lacking in some.  How sad. If you read the article and the cited report you would realize they are the top 10% of states, not all of the states with growth.  Not very interesting if they just list every state in the union.  If you follow up with the source, you will find double the amount listed, and follow up with the sources's source you will find more details...

And who is getting hired?
Five states may be leading the I.T. hiring wave, however I wonder exactly what kind of candidates they are hiring as employers looking for I.T. talent tend to **not** hire anyone **not** male or over age 25.

Re: states
I heard that Austin in particular is a great place to find a job.

But yes, I don't think that I would be able to survie a summer of Texas heat. There are very mild winters there, but you cannot escape the sun during summertime.

Re: states
Yes, it is good to also see the not for profit sector adapting to technology and IT resources. Areas like disaster preparedness do well with leveraging community resources such as social media, websites, mobile and more. It definitely adds to strengthening the cities.

Non-IT Industry jobs
It's really interestng that more and more IT jobs are in opening up in other industries while growth in the IT industry itself is slowing down. This proves that what is being done here is valid and relevant to society as a whole and not just in our own, more narrow sphere.

Re: states
The summers are getting milder every year, and Austin is simply amazing. I work here at HP, and we are always hiring. Not to mention Dell, Apple, HostGator, and the list goes on.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
