Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Respecting the programmer comment 000

To illustrate his point he mentions the common practice of outsourcing to India to put warm bodies in front of computers. He certainly doesn't say that as a rule programmers from India are not competent. He does say that overly cheap labor from India is usually not as competent as their better educated more experience Indian counterparts. I would make the same claim about US programmers.

I actually meant to go further: the low-paid programmers put in front of computers aren't allowed to be highly competent, regardless of their actual aptitude.
