We IT professionals have been reading comments about your summits and

While trying not to bad mouth the messenger, this outsourcing thing wont fly
much longer.
My view is of the grass roots, not mega-deal 30,000 foot view.

The horse may be out of the barn but it will die soon.
I would love for MY congressman to spend a week with YOU!

You are so correct in that India can scale. Kind of hard not to see that
with a 1 Billion population.
India could always scale.

Now, my questions:
Are you going to do research for CIO's on the government perspective?
The moral perspective?
How opening up local I/T body shops for GM and others effect your neighbors?
Tax base?

Want to really nail down CIO information, distribute research on what to do
when the laws change, or massive employee strikes and revolts make
outsourcing unfavorable?
(my apologies if this has been done or thought about earnestly)

I think your estimates (though I have not digested much of any actual
report) are low in the risk analysis.
Your analysis is candy coated and Enron-ed.
Applications don't work better under the circumstances in the article. That
is false.
I can't think of too many Americans that are willing to go to India for
anything, with that said, that means your research in general, suggests
turning over the I/T industry to these folks.

Or are you just reporting historic trends?

Should American students select I/T for a major?
Should American's find something else to do other than I/T?
Do you think there is a shortage of I/T talent in the US?

Your company is *apparently* anti-worker, anti-American, and by
participating in the manner in which you do, you are somewhat responsible
for the troubles ahead.

I don't want our benefits administered in India.
I don't want my SSN on an Indian computer.
I don't want my Visa card number on an Indian Computer.

I don't want to switch careers.
