Editor-in-Chief Frank Ferrante interviews Ron Hira, a public policy professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology and the IEEE-USA vice president for career activities, about the pros and cons of offshoring. The article includes discussions about the differences between outsourcing and offshoring, Hira's involvement in public policy, the future of IT in the US, and the need for IT workers themselves--not just the corporations they work for--to get involved in offshoring policy discussions. It's not a matter of stopping offshoring, Hira says, the question is how to better manage it.
