Q&A about off-shoring

Businessweek has and interesting Q&A with Kevin Wallace of upstart Atmoz regarding off-shoring (the article calls it "outsourcing," but the thrust of the article is about outsourcing overseas).

From Wallace in the article:

"It really gets down to collaboration. We can get all the people we need into one room. A lot of what we do is the user interface, and we like to have our engineers on the phone with customers so they know what customers want. If we had a team overseas, we'd probably end up with more headaches. "

There are some valid points in this article, and some points that are really more applicable to start-ups than to already established businesses. Certainly a worthwhile read.
