If IT demand is so high, why are so many people out of jobs?

An interesting conundrum I've wondered about. There are stories all over the place about demand for IT workers remaining high, IT unemployment being low, and we cannot find the right people for the jobs we have open. The simple answer is that the people I need are not looking for a new job, and the ones that are available are not the ones I need. This article explains it much better than that, especially with this quote, "There are plenty of IT professionals out there. But the truly talented people that clients are seeking -- that's the pool that's shrinking."
