Canada as Evil Offshoring Country

Kleiner Perkins partner Ray Lane waxes fin-du-siecle on the software industry in this interview with Along the way, he has the following comment about India’s unheralded evil twin at offshoring — Canada:

“If you look at our portfolio companies, out of about 60 that could be doing something offshore, 60 percent are already doing it–mostly in India but also in China and Canada. We’re talking about it primarily as a cost move, where quality assurance and testing is moved offshore. You can’t compete if you have all your resources in California.”
