I'd like to segue from comments by Julie Stickler [jstickler -at- gmail -dot- com]about
using an offshore writer.

I am curious why the company is offshoring this function at this time?

* Policy - offshoring everything
* Cheaper rate?
* Elimating benefits and taxes?
* Writer would be local to developers?
* Professional journals say it's the way management to go?
