New Vista for the Outsourcing Market

The Wall St. Journal just ran a really sad story. The writer apparently interviewed a number of US computer science students who…outsource their homework. Yeah, that’s right. They used a site called Rent A Coder, which matches Indian programmers up with US-based projects on a bidding basis.
Do a search on this site with the keyword ‘homework’ and you get over 1000 hits. Not huge, but certainly worthy of being called a trend.
Wonder if those expenses are covered by student loans?
And what are these kids going to do after they graduate? Outsource their individual work assignments?
