A desk, keyboard, mouse, and a cup of Joe…everything needed to outsource yourself to China. In the era of social tech and planetary connectivity all it takes is a little imagination as this true story about Programmer Bob shows. Bob outsourced his programming tasks to a contact in China, received consistent stellar performance reviews, and banked hundreds of thousands of dollars while spending his workdays watching cat videos, managing his ebay store, and updating his LinkedIn page.

Which makes us wonder—do we really need managers to manage workers or should we quit worrying, embrace our inner Bobs, and learn to love cat videos?
