Outsourcin' and Lovin It

There have been several stories making their rounds last week about outsourcing. Large companies have been outsourcing for ages, but now the little guys are picking up on concept and actually outsourcing their own jobs.

There is the infamous story which appeared on about the programmer who actually outsourced his own job to a developer in India. He got paid $67k; paid the Indian programmer $12k and no one was the wiser. Say what you will about the ethics of this, but you have to give this chap some props for being clever. Maybe I will outsource my job?...anyone interested? Hello? A-N-Y-O-N-E???
