Still Made In America?

From our "Maybe there's hope" file...
All–American outsourcing option Rocky Mountain News (01.14)
Well this is the kind of story we're seeing a bit more lately and it gives us a bit of hope:

Ciber Inc. is stamping a "made in America" label on the hot-button practice of outsourcing.

The Greenwood Village company opened a center in Oklahoma City where businesses can tap U.S. workers for software development work – rather than going overseas to use foreign labor in nations such as India.

It's the first of a half-dozen "CIBERsites" the information technology consulting company plans to set up in midsized U.S. cities in the next 12 to 18 months.

"It's a good idea for the company and the country at the same time," said Ciber Chief Executive Mac Slingerlend. "We really need to compete as a society for work that can be done offshore.

What have we been saying all along folks? We're all in this together and we better start acting like it.

Now they still employ folks overseas, and there is nothing intrinsically wrong with that, but at least they appear concerned with the health and welfare of their neighbors and communities here in the US.
