Hi. I was browsing the web, trolling for contracts, and ran across an
outsourcing (I work only via telecommute) company called oDesk. Does anyone
know anything about them? ( In some ways, this company
sounds great - supports off-site work, lets you set your own hours and pay
rate. But, they require writers to install a tracking software that tracks
mouse clicks and computer activity (ostensibly to prove to the client that
you actually worked the hours you said you worked) . This bothers me a lot.

Anyone have any inputs on this?
