Take the Tech Worker Challenge!

Are you ancient enough to remember Frogger? I know I am. So are the fun folk at TechsUnite, who have developed a viral Frogger-based game to spread the word about the plight of American tech workers.

It found it easy to help one tech worker reach the other side of the street. Then I left one in the road to be squished by the corporate truck just to see what would happen. (Spoiler: it is not gory.)

The game is not as good or as viral as The Meatrix. But it may well help build the case that American tech workers now face the same dangers as blue-collar factory workers. Both sets of workers risk being laid off with no notice, having their jobs shift overseas, and having their pension robbed.

So pass it on...
