It's best to keep your name private, but still let the offers come in as long as they match your requirements. Try these sites: FiveYearItch.com JobPoacher.com
Friends can tell you what's really going on in their workplaces; they can also give you the best possible recommendation.
Be an active contributor to GitHub projects

LinkedIn is a fantastic research tool for finding new and interesting companies that do things you want to do. It's not just a networking tool.
If you're into startups, AngelList is a great resource that has steadily been gaining traction.
Turn to a recruiter
Only a professional who's on your side -- working for you -- can make the best possible connection.
