"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."

Groucho Marx. [Quotes of the Day]

I have a t-shirt from Bookshop Santa Cruz with that quote on the front--one of my favorite Marxisms.

Scoble sez:

By the way, if you search Google for "offshoring" you'll find my weblog at the top of the list. Crazy. Am I the world's formost authority on offshoring all of a sudden?[The Scobleizer -- Geek Aggregator]

Being an authority and being widely read and thus linked to are two different things; and that's not a dig at Scoble, who I respect, but more a comment on how Google ranks pages: by counting links.

Meanwhile, TechDirt chimes in on the offshoring topic with a link to the NYT:

History Repeating Itself With Offshoring. The whole offshoring debate is clearly a hot topic as you can't go far without stumbling on yet another article about the topic. . .  The NY Times is now running an article that compares the situation today with the situation fifteen years ago in the hardware business. . .  [Techdirt]
