Hanks Weekly Hangouts #46 (August 31, 2008)

The week has changed very fast up here in the Pacific Northwest into a lot cooler and rainy, which is much different than the 105 degrees of heat in Oregon last week.  The dayjob was catching wind of outsourcing and there may be a post in the works for something similar.  I understand the business reasons for it, but still hits home a little hard when you catch the wind…  Anyway…

    We had a big “in-sourcing” at work a little while back. Our company opened an office in another country that will handle work ours was doing. Business-wise I can see why, but it’s scary to think of nonetheless.
