The topic will be about "low-cost country sourcing" of labor. If you've followed the recent news about Apple, Dell, HP and Foxconn, this is relevant. Additionally, many small manufacturers and developers are facing the challenges of on-shore vs. off-shore. Should be an interesting discussion and chance to reconnect with your local community.
Also recommend listening to: Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory from This American Life. Be sure to listen all the way to the end with Nick Kristof.
