I just looked at the source and it's built with Angular and Angular Material. The UI for the Cloud Console app is incredible work.

This is a great option for a lot of people. Glad to see you posted this. Spend 4 years in the military and you leave with great experience, have learned how to "work hard", you're respected by your peers and future employers plus you likely have a bunch of money in savings. Really wonderful option for the right people.

I'm up in Johnson City and grew up in Knoxville. I love Tennessee, but there is zero tech scene as you know. I do freelancing remotely and it provides a great life for us.

Matt Cutts tweeting is how I found out.

Don't really have to much add except that I love StackOverflow. It's been helpful so many times.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Plantronics and their model 995H. They are wireless, double as a mic, have great sound quality and have controls for audio playback. $100 at the official site and I'm sure cheaper somewhere else.

I spent some serious time researching this topic last year and for the money this set was by far the best option. For the money, they are the best.

Wireless with built-in mic wins FTW. They aren't a set for audiophiles but the sound quality is excellent.

Thanks for your wonderful answer. I'm a generalist as well and have many of the same feelings you describe: "If only I knew more deeply".

I've dealt with the bottom falling out very recently. I spent last summer becoming a specialist in Adobe Flex for our desktop app and we know what happened there.

Haha, that's why I always use a dummy email addy at our own domain and make sure all unrouted mail bounces.

I think it starts with one question: Am I dreading sitting down in front of the computer today?

If yes, then you're definitely just burnt out. If the answer is no and you're not producing then you're being lazy.

When I see this report about the popularity of jQuery, I have to think a bunch of it is related to growth of WordPress as well. Without WordPress jQuery wouldn't be used on nearly that many sites.
