Hear, hear!

Not to mention the possibility of creating a project and hiring telecommuters from wherever they are... no taxes, no staff coffeemaker, no watercooler politics discussions on your dime...

It's not just France... we've had a few "dust ups" (love that phrase) here in the US about all these "furriners" who are showing up our homegrown programmers, or, at least, underbidding them. Tempest in a teapot, of course; Ukrainian and Russian programmer paychecks are now rising rapidly, and people here have rediscovered the benefits of live team brainstorming sessions.

As we have. We started our business with two Ukrainian brothers and a few others, built our systems over the course of several years, and have now imported them (the brothers) into the US, paying them US-sized paychecks. It allowed us to survive our own fumbling attempts to define our product and our market, and keep the business going until it was profitable. Now that it is, we're reaching for the next level, with our two very good programmer friends having earned a piece of the company. I don't know that we could have done so had we tried to depend on only my programming skills or hiring American talent. And yes, we got lucky, hiring two of the most talented and loyal guys over there.
