Predictions again – IT freelancers

My love of people predicting the future continues. I’ve just read an article on the German business community Xing. The article quotes a survey about what lies in store for 2009 when it comes to IT freelance work.

In closing, it can be said that 2009 will not fulfill all the wishes of IT freelancers, but, there is no real cause for a lot of pessimism. So you could say the year will be “mixed”.


I remember reading somewhere that the most accurate way of predicting the weather for tomorrow is to say it will be the same as today.
