Found this from a company offering offshore programming services:
Through our Hire Manage Pay system, professional’s work time is automatically logged along with webcam and desktop snapshots proving accurate timesheet management.
So all programmers machines are monitored by webcam and screencaps, which you can then review to be sure they’re working on what they say they are for the amount of time they say they are. Fascinating. How long until this gets to U.S. IT shops?
