IT hiring increasing in the United States

The Web: Searching for survivors online
The Internet served as an electronic ally in the wake of Katrina.

CHICAGO, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- The New Orleans Police and the Louisiana National Guard have an electronic ally in their search for survivors of Hurricane Katrina: the Internet, experts tell UPI's The Web.

Individuals are using the Web to search for lost loved ones and view satellite images of damaged property, and content producers and Internet Service Providers have launched a registry for survivors of the catastrophic storm. By Gene Koprowski

Unions Step Up Organizing of IT Workers, Outsourcing Fight
Workers of the tech world unite - unionize.

Is the IT workforce ripe for union membership? Recent splits in several large labor organizations, growing IT pessimism and the increasing strength of offshore outsourcing are fueling new efforts to attract information workers, insiders say.
There may be growing support among the workforce for such union representation. A union-backed survey released in late August revealed "increasing pessimism" among United States-based technology workers, who see less demand in the future for their skills.

"Clearly, the pixie dust for tech workers has worn off," said Marcus Courtney, president of WashTech/CWA, the Seattle-based alliance of technology workers that organized the national survey. By Gene Koprowski

Networking: Internet telephony enticing new users
Corporations force workers to make due with less.

CHICAGO, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Making calls over the Internet -- rather than over the conventional phone network -- may become the norm for corporations in the coming years, experts told UPI's Networking.

Research shows corporations are installing network equipment to make Internet phone calls -- in geekspeak, Voice over Internet Protocol or VoIP -- at a 6.6 percent annual rate. By Gene Koprowski

Wireless World: Mobile-phone Web browsing
Another way to waste your hard earned money - Internet browsing on mobile phones.

CHICAGO, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Internet browsing and search features on mobile phones are influencing the decision-making process of consumers, motivating them to buy goods and services to which they might not otherwise have been exposed, experts told UPI's Wireless World.

A new study on the trend, "The Role of Search in the Wireless Market," was released earlier this week by Yahoo! and the analysis firm Compete Inc. in Boston. The study tracked Internet search and transaction activity over a 12-month period and found that search plays a "distinctive role in the decision making process" of consumers looking to purchase products and services -- particularly wireless products.

Commentary: Democracy : Environment : Everyday Life : Kansas City
What has happened to democracy in Johnson County?
"Outraged citizens have fought the quarry for fifteen years while more than 125 acres of beautiful rolling hills, forested areas and creek valleys have been destroyed. And now the new five-year permit, granted June 23, allows the barren quarry pit, with its 100-foot shear cliff, to expand by another 179 acres."
