  I'm sure I've shared this before, but around 2002 or 2003 there was an
article in BusinessWeek magazine about outsourcing and offshoring
technical work.  As should be no surprise, it was really pushing the
idea.  The author talked about, and this is a direct quote,
"mind-numbing digital toil" and how it should be the domain of legions
of minions in other countries.

  That explains pretty clearly how these suits view our lines of work.
