I don't believe that's correct; if you are a US citizen, live outside the US and work outside the US, you are still liable to pay US taxes. Now, there is a fairly generous exclusion you can claim that, for most people, will completely nullify their tax obligation. But if you earn enough money (for 2011, the amount was US$92,900), you will still be liable for taxes on the marginal amount above the exclusion.

It's called the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion.

I worked on a project with a team in Chennai and we did it the opposite way; 7 AM Eastern, 5:30 PM Indian. Worked out pretty well, although sometimes it was a bit tough being put on the spot when they've been hammering on an issue all day and you're still groggy, wiping the sleep from your eyes.

Everyone is interesting to somebody, even if it's just their local bartender/coworker/pizza delivery guy/romantic rival... Now it used to be the case that it didn't matter as none of these everyday "mundane" acquaintances had the time, access or expertise to pull together a dossier but today it's pretty trivial.
