What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"By examining software development in the 'wrong place' of Rio de Janeiro, Yuri Takhteyev shows us with vivid accounts and clear narrative how individuals who work far from the geographic hubs of their field create local connections and shape local environments even as they embrace global culture and pursue global dreams for themselves and their locations. The concept of a 'wrong place' proves an immediately beguiling and completely original approach for understanding work in the global setting; Takhteyev's choice of Rio, in particular, is nothing short of brilliant."—Diane Bailey, School of Information, University of Texas at Austin
