Define "clued people".
Someone that rides whatever latest technology is "hot"?

I really don't know how it works on the networking/telco world, but in 
software development I don't think it's so clear cut.. Specially when you 
have LOTS many more people available than jobs.

Also someone's technical abilities have nothing to do with someone's 
ability to search for jobs. Heck I have met great tech people that were 
awfull at interviews.

That still doesn't mean that people who love computers will have an easier 
time at finding a job than someone who is in just for the money.. If 
anything someone on it just for the money probably has better skills at 
getting the next job and learning technology for the sake of making 
money.. regardless of how good/bad the techology is.
