I liked the movie Outsourced (anyone seen it?) a lot. I saw it again last week and though it's a comedy it has message, it's about cultural understanding and communication more than it is about outsourcing, but the movie has made me think about outsourcing a lot. In general, I am a libertarian and I don't believe that borders should stop the free flow of money. On the other hand - I don' t feel that way about agriculture at all, all food should be grown locally, and I think there are limits to our human biology that the market cannot accomodate for. What are your thoughts and opinions on the matter? How do you feel about US and UK labor being outsourced to other countries?

Has anyone seen this movie? I'm slowly writing a review for this movie. A Seattle based manager of an order fulfillment dept. for "Western Novelty" (cheap kitschy products, a lot of which are patriotic american) is sent to India to train his replacement and set up the replacement department and teach a bunch of average Hindi's to "act American". He doesn't want to go, but is threatened with the loss of his options and benefits and stuff he's invested into the job. He's resistant to Indian culture, has no sense of himself as an American - and this creates a lot of funny moments, but it's not as stereotypical as you'd think. The movie is a gentle romantic comedy about him discovering that there are some things Indian (including the lovely Ayesha Dharker, who played the evil queen in attack of the clones) worth incorporating into his life. Anyone else seen this?

Here’s the lovely Stacy Hedger’s rendition of the Star Wars theme on the trumpet, talent show style: http://www.gloob.tv/stupid/oh_no_star_wars...et?article=1976 At least it wasn’t the tuba!
