Life, outsourced!

The Esquire article by Jacobs is here, but it has only the teaser. The rest of the article requires a subscription, or can be purchased for $2.95!

It was only a matter of time before it happened. Read this ABC News story [link via Tilotamma] about Esquire magazine's editor-at-large A.J. Jacobs who "began wondering how much of his own life he could send overseas". And, guess what?

... He discovered he could outsource almost everything, from ordering his food to fighting with his wife, and wrote about his experience in this month's issue of Esquire.

"To begin with they were answering my e-mails, making calls for me, ordering groceries, buying movie tickets," Jacobs said. "By the end they were reading my son bedtime stories."
