My Job Went to India…


    A friend turned me onto this blog entry Dave Thomas wrote about a new book he's involved with: My Job Went to India… And All I Got Was This Lousy Book. Sounds like a topic that's of great interest to me:

    The American IT job market is slowly coming apart at the seams, and it's all our fault. Most of us have been stumbling around letting our careers take us where they may, and now we're surprised when our companies are shipping our jobs overseas for a fraction of the price. It's time to take control of our careers, and in the process, learn to stay both relevant and employed. This book will show you how to take action to avoid becoming yet another casualty of offshoring.

    The quandary: Dave's wondering — because some folks set him to wondering — is the title rascist in some way? He's set up a wiki page to get feedback. You can weigh in here.
