well, that's the whole reason I brought this up in the first place.What I do (at least for the duration of this contract) is support offshore outsourcing... something that I tend to disagree with in general, and really don't like in the specific means in which we're doing it. And the fact that companies are becoming more and more "successful" at it (in no small part due to people doing jobs like mine), means that I may havce to "re-skill" and do something else. The one saving grace is, maybe I will do that and be happier... Jay-Z knows I couldn't be much more miserable... actually I shouldn't say that... I can always be more miserable. But anyway, the point is, I shouldn't have to. If I change careers, it should be because I want to. Not because all of the jobs are taken up by cheaper (and in this case, pretty inferior) labor.

On the other hand, maybe if I can find the next big thing now, and start doing it, then by the time the rest of you are looking to move over because all software development is now being done by methane based bacteria on Mars, I'll already have my foot in the door and I can be... oh joy of joys... middle management... I figure if I start today, I probably have at least a 3 or 4 week head start.
