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.
Outsourcing Your Life !
