Someone else, read this

Scott Wegener decides to let someone else do the hard work.

Signs of the Times, May 2011.

These days, you don’t have to look too far or too hard to find an example of “outsourcing.” From couples contracting surrogate mothers to businesses using a call centre in a country where the primary language is not that of the customer’s, it’s all about getting someone—or something—else to do a job for us.

While we’re getting closer, we have yet to reach outsourcuration (is that a word?). But I’m sure somewhere in the world there are scientists working on ways to outsource maths exams, flossing and prostate checks.
