Very interesting indeed. I am in the middle of selecting a vendor for a web development project at my job and we've experienced a lot of what he talks about first-hand. One of the commenters notes that some of this info is not necessarily applicable (directly, at least) to overseas developers. We're dealing a lot with vendors from India, Russia, etc. because they offer tremendously lower dev costs and still good quality. But still a lot of the points made are important to consider. I just hope we end up making a good selection of vendor.
