"your 200 thousand dollar job as an architect.."!!!!!!!!! generally I'm impressed with the accuracy of even incidental comments or anecdotes on thr brian lehrer show, but as an architect practicing in nyc for 5 years,i need to point out that barely anyone with a job as an architect, and in a position to be laid off makes 200 thousand yearly! only firm principals/owners might make around that much & more- but it is a common misconception that architects make decent money...maybe a segment on what architects actually make would be a good idea:
since you are a fan & trail-blazer of crowd-sourcing, this website does a salary poll of practicing architects- check it out:

What do I do for a living?

I'm an out of work editor, and have been blogging about matters I think are 1) important and 2) I have some expertise.

It seems to impress prospective employers, though I'm still awaiting job offers.

The blogs are Tech2Green.blogspot.com (convergence of IT and global warming) and ITJobAnalyst.blogspot.com (IT job trends).

It is funny you mentioned facebook as a social networking site. My boyfriend has a page on facebook but I refuse to be on it. Not everyone wants to be found and contacted. If you know me and we are friends, you have my e-mail to contact me.

Can't stand the phone.

If you do contact old friends for networking, keep following up, don't just get help for the job, keep the friendship so people don't feel used.
