Open Source Outsourcing!!!

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Vigo Breadcrumbs, Apr 1, 2004.

  1. Here's a good one (you will need to watch a brief commercial to get to the
    article):
    http://www.salon.com/tech/feature/2004/04/01/collabnet/index.html

    The gist? It's what you get when an open-source-will-save-the-world-Linux-
    foamer deludes himself into thinking that sending work to India saves
    American jobs. The concept is a little schizoid, and I had to read it
    through a few times. I always find it amusing when some BoBo buckraker
    thinks a thin veneer of buzzword hoo-haw disguised as social consciousness
    elevates his activities over naked greed.

    Happy reading!

    Yes, yes, I see.

    If I could just see The Big Picture, I would realize that all this is to
    my benefit!

    Overseas companies are so quick to exploit the sweat of their own people,
    the are willing to devalue the very commodity they are peddling. Yes, that
    makes perfect sense.
