IT Going to the Farm?

CBS News has an article out about a possible new trend for tech companies to farming out jobs to the farm instead of other countries. I'm not as irate over outsourcing as some. If we can't compete with other countries for the work, then we deserve to lose. This shows, though, that if companies choose to locate in areas that aren't as expensive as large cities, then they can be competitive and local.

My hope is that this could also speed up the adoption of broadband Internet access inrural areas. I'd love to live in a small town away from all the traffic, but still be able to take advantage of the communication possibilities that come with high speed Internet accesss.
