Outsourcing Your Life !

Marc Andreessen’s post on productivity (which by the way – is among the best pieces you can read on productivity – it says in one short post which millions of books say in chapters) led me to Tim Ferriss’s blog – who has recently written a bestseller called the “4 Hour Work Week” (4 hours! – the title screams wannabe self help bestseller). In an interview with Robert Scoble – he mentions a friend of his who “outsourced his life” to India – including writing e-mails to his boss and even mediating disputes between him and his wife! Now I found that terribly amusing – wondered who in India provided such services, if at all.Anyway yesterday I stumbled upon this: www.getfriday.com – a service to get your very own virtual Man Friday based out of India (Not a bad name by the way) and this hilarious piece by the editor of Esquire magazine (who is the man Ferriss has talked about). Didn’t know outsourcing got that grassroot.
