You Want A Node Job, Right?

April 17th, 2009at 07:14am Posted by Eli

Wired has a feature on an indie sci-fi film called Sleep Dealer, where the future of immigration is virtual “telemigration” – instead of crossing the border, Mexican workers jack in with the help of “coyoteks” and and perform menial labor in the U.S. via remote control.

I wonder how the anti-immigration people would take this idea.  Technically, the telemigrants would still be in their home country – this would be more akin to outsourcing than anything else.
