MS Virus Issues

This from KOMO-TV: The person visited public areas in Redmond between Aug. 16 and Aug. 20. REDMOND - King County public health officials have confirmed a case of measles in an adult exposed to the virus while traveling abroad.

Basically, he came back from some offshoring expedition and returned to Microsoft campus. Between the exotic places that Microsoft is fishing up workers and the sickly nature of computer guys, we have a Measles outbreak.

There is something ironically fitting in this. I'm having many politically incorrect thoughts about how the Hudson's Bay company used to trade cootie covered blankets that would decimate their trading partners. What if people in North America are retaining their hold on IT work? What if that grip needs to be interrupted a little with coughing and sneezing? Where would a place like Microsoft turn for skilled labor in the event their North American staff started dropping off like flies?
