Look at this Google Trends screenshot I just captured this snowy Siberian night:
Do you see how accurately the outsourcing trend (red) follows the web 2.0 trend (blue)? Same ups and downs, same general trends: the red line looks just like the blue one was aligned, straightened and leveled.
And I am sure, that’s not a coincidence. New ways for people to collaborate (Web 2.0) demand new ways to develop them (outsource). Ease to launch a startup comes together with ease to find skilled developers. And I have come up with even more spiritual slogan: Web 2.0 is discovering new people out there, and outsourcing is discovering new talents.
