"I agree. I would love to move to Alaska. Any Alaskan companies looking for an experienced LAMP developer? I scan the job sites on a regular basis but haven't found any appropriate opportunities."
I agree with you, but if you look beyond the snarky comments in the "article" you will see they also consider the employment situation. Anchorage perhaps has the lowest per-capita quantity of IT jobs of any major city in the US. The number of tech companies that have a significant presence there is near zero. Just a few corporate IT jobs.
