Doesn’t matter. Two reasons.

ONE. IBM is still a behemoth that moves tons of high paying tech jobs from the US overseas. I’ve seen estimates that show that out of a 350,000 person workforce, less than 50K are now US based. That’s a helluva lot of high level employment shoring up foreign nations whilst shortchanging ours. IBM shrinking at what, about 1–2% a year, means they’ll be around for a long, long time.

TWO. They are all doing it. Microsoft, Accenture, Oracle, HP, all of them have huge foreign operations these days, and lots of employees in Russia. I could have used any one of them, same story.
