(techie) Will Bangalore do to Silicon Valley what Japan did to Detroit?  
David emailed me this story from Yahoo Business. Quote: business software is "too complicated. It's too expensive. That's why it's change-or-die time". There's a suggestion that quality experts may get a hearing in India's burgeoning IT industry, while they are ignored in the US, and speculation that the Indians could do to America's IT industry what the Japanese did to its cars. Far-fetched perhaps, but there's a lot of signs that the Indian IT sector is really taking off, and with the huge difference in labour costs, and the international nature of the industry, it seems fairly likely that they'll at least dent Silicon Valley's profits.
