Rajesh for the Win
My man in Kerala got a follow up job. After a few tedious hours late last night of wrestling with another spreadsheet, I went back to Elance. I posted the details of the job, and also invited the fellow who did the previous job. He said he could get it done by Sunday night if I gave him the word today. I also got a few other bids -- another one from India, and one from the Philippines at almost the same price point as Rajesh, and one from Australia for 250% more. Only the Aussie promised to get the job done quicker than Rajesh. Checking the time where Rajesh lives via Wolfram Alpha, I realized his business day would be over by the time I woke up. So rather than wait for additional bids, I awarded the job to him.
