A Blast from my Academic Past...

My Google Alert for "Casey O'Donnell" or Google Ego Monitor notified me this morning of the re-emergence of my essay for the IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication. I wrote an essay entitled, "Making an Open Source Case for Offshoring." Because the essay was shorter, short on data beyond my own observations, and a bit risqué, it was labeled a "Commentary" piece, which I was not opposed to. It was a spin off an elaboration on an earlier essay that was somewhat schizophrenic, which was published in First Monday. That piece was titled, "A Case for Indian Insourcing: Open Source Interest in IT Job Expansion." That essay was published along with several other essays from a 4S Meeting in Paris, France. Because it was schizophrenic, I broke it into two separate essays. One of those was the IEEE Commentary and the second was published in the IGI Global edited book, "Handbook of Research on Open Source Software." That chapter was titled, "The Labor Politics of Scratching an Itch." In the end, breaking the essay apart and expanding upon each section made each piece work better and I'm happy with the way it turned out. It is just funny what a Sunday morning Ego Alert will cause you to go back and investigate.
