Important Information

The article left out some arguably important information. How many hackers earned a piece of that $11.7m pie? How many folks are able to make a living from this kind of work? How many are just earning a little extra on the side? It's certainly good news that this bit of the economy is growing, but is it made up of a bunch of part-timers or well-paid workers? We have a good idea of who the customers are but not of the providers.

Which workers were winning welcome wages?
