“Hello, I’m a Bill Gates”

bill gates The Joy of Tech brings us yet another great commentary on the world that surrounds us. And by ‘us’, I of course mean computer geeks. And by computer geeks, I mean those of us who follow the silliness that has abounded lately with the release of Vista and the subsequent media blitz that Bill Gates has been on to plug the ‘next generation’ operating system. Good stuff as always, from Joy of Tech.

East versus West

Wall Street Journal has an interesting round-up of political moves, rants and raves on the subject of outsourcing. It is not surprising all the noise coming from Washington DC, given that is an election year. On that same note, here in India, election fever is in full swing. Outsourcing related troubles in the faraway USA don’t make much news here, and whatever news that there is normally buried on the inside pages of the newspapers. It is interesting to see how two sets of politicians are dealing with an issue that is changing lives – some for better, some for worse.
