Cut Out The Middleman

I am an independent consultant (6 years Java experience) finishing up a contract here in New York and I am about to relocate to Washington DC. I was hired on on my current contract through a headhunter who charges $110 an hour for me. Needless to say...I don't make $110 an hour but I'd like to get a little closer to that amount. The problem is...how do we programmers find jobs WITHOUT a middleman? Are there forums where HR people can post openings for IC's directly? You'd think this would have evolved by now...as paying 40% to a headhunter for placing a few calls and setting up an interview seems outrageous.

Any thoughts on this subject...?

You need to negotiate the contract before signin up with the consulting firm . Look out for the firm which work on percent basis ( 80-20 or 90-10 ) .
