When it comes to recruiting top talent, Internet companies face a much different picture
than they once did. "Tech workers aren't rushing to work at dot-coms in the way that they
were two to three years ago," Alan Hoffman, a technology jobs expert at Monster.com, told
the E-Commerce Times. And in response to job-seekers' new focus on base salary and benefits
rather than fat stock-option packages, dot-coms have adopted a more traditional approach
to recruiting.

Dot-Coms will ultimately remain appealing to IT professionals because most Dot-Coms push technology to new levels. An IT professional needs to stay on top of the latest trends otherwise risk becoming obsolete.

Well it's true that IT professionals constitute a critical piece in the big picture of a Dot-Com company, but many companies have to find its real business that it is not necessarily the technology field.
The success of a Dot-Com now depends on how advanced is technology, depends on its ability to manage and apply the information to increment the corporate value. And today, Dot-Com companies are hungry for that kind of professionals.

Technology could be used to solve most of the world's problems if properly applied.
Technology creates more problems than it solves.
Some technologies are inherently good, and some are inherently evil.
I accept technology's risks in order to enjoy its benefits.
I'd like to go back in time to an era when technology was far less prevalent.
I'd like to go forward in time to a more technologically advanced era.
