I think it depends a lot on the specifics of your situation. If you're really friendly with your boss, or want to maintain that relationship, then yeah, tell him/her earlier. But 2 weeks is all common courtesy really requires for most jobs. Everyone I work with already knows I'm leaving, but if I had a traditional boss-employee relationship to account for, I probably would have held off on telling them until 2-4 weeks before.
