    Highly readable account of “rural sourcing” in this ComputerWorld article. That’s the idea of taking your IT work to small communities away from the coasts, where salaries and the cost of living are less, and you don’t face the cultural, language and time-zone barriers that are part and parcel of most offshoring.

    The article ends with some useful salary data culled from http://www.homefair.com.

    Apparently, an IT pro earning $100,000 in San Francisco, would have to earn this much to retain his or her standard of living in these smaller towns:

    Savannah

    , GA

    $50,693

    Jonesboro

    , AR

    $39,506

    Portales

    , NM

    $37, 517

    Fargo

    , ND

    $40,374
