They could call it an "experiment"

by Volker Weber

Duffbert quotes The Industry Standard:

Project Match, an IBM offshoring initiative the Standard reported on last month, offers U.S. employees the chance to stay with IBM by relocating to another country, to work in an IBM regional division at local wage rates. IBM has roughly 400,000 employees in 170 countries. As of early February, fewer than ten employees had shown interest in the program.

Sounds like DoesNotWorkplace.

Are you implying that up to 10 customers showed interest in DoesNotWorkplace?

10 in 400,000 potential customers.

Am I right, that "another country" means India in particular :)? Sounds tempting...

@Joerg: it said "fewer than ten". Zero is a number that's fewer than ten. ;-)

Bob Congdon, 2009-03-31

@Bob: Now, that's mean ;-)

That's why I said "up to ten". I felt that saying "are you implying that less than 10 showed interest" would have made it sound like I thought there were more than 10. Which I don't ;-)

Roland, this looks suspiciously like my link under "The Industry Standard" :-)

Volker Weber, 2009-04-01

@Volker, yeah uh, the irony :-/

Roland Leißl, 2009-04-01

And it's called "Project Match" because they're moving the people like matches?
