A bizarre thought

I've been wondering for awhile how outsourcing would eventually come to American higher education, joking with Liz and the few who will speak to me about it showing up in having grading and other servile tasks of graduate students done for even lower wages on the subcontinent.

But tonight I realized that I was thinking about it from the wrong direction: it's already here, and it's being led by jackasses like this.

The interweb killed the days of buying a paper from the class nerd.

Of course with all the "Visiting" Professors I had in college, all of them speaking engrish as a second ranguage, I'd have figured the outsourcing began years ago.

Is it really so hard to find somebody with a PhD in Computer Science or Math that speaks decent english?

You mean to tell me that there is a cheaper source of labor than graduate students??

I particularly like the "no plagiarism" disclaimer.
