But it's sooo important to be the FIRST! to report on something for all that fame, glory and cash! Self-important, sensationalist morons, all of them.

Hey did you hear that Mariah Carey's problem last night was that the monitors were broken and she couldn't sing because she couldn't read the lyrics?

My field (process plant engineering) is experiencing this now, with (tens of?) thousands of jobs being offshored. The time from design "completion" in office to actual plant operation can be six months to two years so it can be difficult to correctly attribute sources of failures. Much work is "fixed in the field" at additional cost, but if that field fix cost is less than what is saved by use of cheap engineers and designers...

It's probably also cheaper to pay additional upfront insurance to guard against engineering incompetence.

Brain work has been commoditized.
