In other news, digging through the reliquary articles of Eric S. Raymond (or ESR, or Tri-lettered Evil 0v3rl0rd of Open Source #2), Doc discovers that the line between insanity and genius is blurred yet again. ESR's writings on mysticism and religion are one thing (pretty cool, to say the least, but a little out there) - his writings on the utility of mathematics is better for completely different reasons.
And this article is perhaps the best example of why you should (or should not) outsource IT jobs. Why does it take so long for stupid people to get smart? You can also read the original /. article I got the link from, which will likely be even more full of mindless blabbering about the effects of globalization on the international workplace.
