Great theory for 2008, except for the whole economy is screwed,

I'm completely speculating here, but maybe the reason we're doing so well so
far is that, I'd imagine, a significant portion of our readers are in the
tech sector (at least compared to most non-profits), where job cuts haven't
yet become as widespread as they are in other sectors like manufacturing and
housing. I don't have much for hard statistics to back up either of these
claims, so obviously, take them with a grain of salt.
I would imagine, however, that if my point is true, that future fundraisers
might not be so lucky, as the tech sector will probably experience a similar
decline over the next 18 months.
