This guy's story mirrors the stories of the early 90s in the valley when there were no real 'Computer Science Degrees'.. just geeks & hackers learning the craft from O'Reilley books. To start from zero and to build a career. Many folks did it, including yours truly.
The shift in tech to low-price low-quality no-real-innovation hit everyone. Hard. But no one has a story quite like this guy:
He's Outsourced, Unemployed & Homeless- for over a year, and is blogging about it. This pic pretty much says it all:
Personally? This is how I started my career in IT as a consultant, living partially out of a flophouse & my car and going to clients at o'dark thirty in the morning. Paying dues. For me, this was the early 90s... for a lot of geeks around this time.
But who in this country or any other would want to end their career this way?
Who in any country puts the rights of foreigners before its own citizens?
What's the point of being a citizen of the United States anyway?
No other country behaves this way.
Memo to Professor 'Fraudwa'. What slope is more slippery than this??? Was this guy's job 'saved'? Even your own home country knows the score.
Memo to President Obama: Why do you continue the failed immigration policies of the previous administration? Do we all get to 'go to Canada' like your generation did? We may have to if you keep up these policies.
Memo to all you comfy Boomers: You turned this guy out on the street?? What. The. Fuck. I'm speechless....
Go to this guy's site, and if you have the means, drop him some coin.....there are a LOT of geeks in this situation. What should they do?
Go to a country that appreciates them? Because it's obvious the USA does not, nor cares that our tech is being transferred overseas.
