Commodity Code

I prefer to think of everyone on the planet that makes money as a business that takes a pain and solves it for a fee. Compare hiring a coder locally versus out-sourcing to one in India. They both produce code, but is it the code that I want?

If I go local, then I'll spend 10% of my time managing employee and 90% doing my own thing. If I go remote, then I'll spend 30% of my time managing/spec writing and 70% doing my own thing.
