    Might have been an H1V?

    Funny that you mention that. This girl actually made us go to the clinic together to get tested before she'd have sex with me. Only time that's ever happened.

    You still need a lot of collaboration in tech so the language barrier is generally an issue when you're trying to communicate abstract technical ideas. It's the same reason I'm against telecommuting.
    Nice to meet you. What pronoun should I use?

    Telecommuting is a solution, and not a problem.

    Qualified for the price? Please.

    Regardless, the H1B program is a disaster.

    It's certainly a viable solution in several areas. In my experience, tech is not one of them. I can work through ideas 10 times faster co-located in front of a whiteboard than over the phone or Citrix. Too much gets lost and ideas can't effectively be communicated.

    It's a problem. People simply do less work.

    Exactly. Ours is a tech company and it doesn't work well at all.
