Note: This is not an elitist rant. It used to be that I would go off into a blistering rant whenever I heard anyone talking about offshore development. The mere idea that a group of people half way around the world could not only do a better job than me, but do it cheaper, was sheer nonsense. Not only that, I found the idea offensive, repulsive, repugnant, disgusting, and really just plain obtuse. Not so much anymore.
