High-technology businesses continue to grow spectacularly. A gradual upturn in the global economy is expected to bring in an even greater bounty of outsourced jobs to India.
....
Take a one-mile stretch on Bannerghatta Road in southern Bangalore and the construction points to 45,000 new software and services jobs right there," he added. It is a stretch that includes offices of multinationals like Oracle, I.B.M., Accenture, Hewlett-Packard, PeopleSoft, Honeywell and HSBC Bank

Anyway, I think outsourcing might be like dotcom boom turn to bust for the recipients of it when the winning US candidate for presidency enact their plans to control it due to the result of jobless recovery in US.

Once our presidential candidates are done with their campaign and the selected one presides again, he's gonna forget all about us again. Corporations will continue its practices, ex-software developers will continue yapping on javaranch.in(or whatever domain extension they're using over in India). Globalozation is coming.. We're gonna be able to buy cheap software build in India, install it on cheap HP machines, build and configured in India and do what?...
I've heard local college converted its CS dept into plumbing department and provides affordable courses to ex-developers. After that sky is a limit. Get your plumbing licence now !

Many a true word spoken in jest - I've seen stuff on Tv about it experts retraining as plumbers in Reading ( between Oxford and London) - our version of silicon valley.
Fact: here you can't get a plumber for love nor money and they charge circa 30 an hour.

Hi Alex,
The reason is there is no law protect software developers. US Department of Labor do not considered software engineer as engineer, as writer, nor even as artist. When the outsource had touches other professions, those affected have some kind of compensation packages to retrain into different careers. Software developers have none.
Last year on this forum, I learned there were protested rally gathering in New York. There were also contact names with respectable medias for grievance stories. Whatever happened to those no one know. But onething for sure based from stories publishing the only group that truely affected were call centers people. As the footnote said call center jobs equivalent to repo-man jobs.
This year the election year, no one makes a sound about the issue. But there is still noise on this forum. How's ironic. Yes, I also hear about candidates mention about outsourcing jobs, but it is too general to make any impact.
Regards,
MCao

I disagree. Software may be programmed in India, but hardware will be assembled in China. For my own country, Germany, i have high hopes, that we will remain as the world's car-producer. Car fabrication is done 99% by robots, so no need for outsorcing, because robots are not paid.
According to Neil Stephenson's "Snow crash" the only branch the usa will stay leading is serving pizza. But of course -- it's just a nice idee and not the truth, neither for the us nor for the pizza.

Hi,
Automobile is not a commodity, yet. Are you sure that robots is paid off for its intension? I sense the Japanese is etching your countrymen out of number 1 spot.
I have seen a robotic system manufacture computers, assemble, install proprietary software, box them, and file up at shipping dock. The sticker price is not paid off as a bunch of Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Fillipino, and Mexican place at the appropriate places along the conveyor belt.
Robot is installed due to population scarcity and inhumane to send a person to work in an intolerable condition.

The best pizza is in Napoli and Rome.

Well, cars & robots. Don't take that too serious, Matt. I just wanted to spot on the phenomen, that industrial monoculture is rising. In Germany #1 industry is car manufaction, and also we have a so called "car-chancellor" who pushes that industry. So if there will be a world-software-center in India, why not a world-car-center in Germany as well?
It won't, because shipping cars around the world is more difficult than sending bits and bytes, so at least on each continent there should be one car-center. Maybe somewhen in future the problem of shipping is solved when a beaming machine is developed, but then you won't need cars any more, because you can use the beamer for traveling. And also the peak for these sci-fi jokes was in 90's.
Car production in 2003:
1. USA
2. Japan
3. Germany
4. China
5. France
People say, Japanese are best in building robots as toys, Europeans are best in building robots for industry, Americans are best in building robots for military. In car industry robots are used to lower the number of employees and so lower costs.

I agree to Rome. Napoli I haven't visited. but I heard, historically first pizza was from there.

Hi,
Car production is not related to car satisfaction. I live in southern california 7 months per year. I see which car making a cut in this automobile capital of the world. But tell your "car chancellor" not to worry, I still vote for German car. You have no idea how relieved I was when I saw the chopper with a Mercedes logo landed and picked me up in the middle of Mojave desert.
I guess that I need to stop now because the thread is gearing toward MD.
Regards,
MCao
