A word of advice to all the C9ers, if you want to work in the technolgy sector, I highly recomend working for a Japanese company. The Japanese are inherently racist against other Asian people, and are very resistant to sending programming jobs to India
While Oracle, Cisco, Microsoft, etc. are all shipping jobs to India and China, - Panasonic, Sony, Toyotta, Fijitsu etc. are all shipping jobs to the U.S. The Japanese Execs also tend to thing long term, while US execs are notorious for thinking short term.
