Liquid Portal looks like the VAT of death.

Comment 5/04/11: Yes, anonymous, that is exactly IBM's intent with Liquid Portal. The core development team will define all aspects of the project by detailing the design of each component in a specification document. You developers who are becoming spec writers may think your job is secure, but it won't be for long. Soon enough, the Liquid Portal"players" competing for the work will also be given competitions to write the specs themselves. IBM is looking to establish ongoing relationships with cheap freelancers through Liquid Portal. The intent is to reduce the full time staff - cut costs. It is expensive to pay benefits and commit to employing people full time when you may just want them for short term projects. With Liquid Portal, there is no commitment. Liquid Portal freelancers will be cut loose when the project is complete. IBM is aggressively moving forward with Liquid Portal, and they don't care about negative impact to project schedules. It's probably because they want to get it well established before employees wake up and realize they are being displaced. BTW, it is foolish for IBM US employees to compete on Liquid Portal. You are essentially telling IBM that you don't have enough to do with your full time job, so you you might as well be RA'ed so you can participate as a freelancer, as well. However, if you do attempt to compete as an IBM US employee, keep in mind that your costs are higher than a China/India GR. When selecting Liquid Portal event participants, we are being told to favor the GR players because they are cheaper. Wake up, everyone - it is looking very bad for IBM US employees, particularly in IGS, although I am sure LP will spread to SWG soon enough.-Anony2-

Comment 5/03/11: Hi Anonymous, It is refreshing to see someone with insight on what is going to happen in IBM. I agree with your pump-n-dump theory. Eventually, the off shoring will reach a tipping point but there are still thousands of US and Europe employess that will be terminated. My guess is there will be a lot more RA numbers and it will be accelerating for another couple of years. This will artificially pump the stock due to lower costs of doing business. Once they reach their peak in off shoring, the stock price will level off through attrition and zero growth will cause it to be dumped. The greed will accelerate the pace of RA's to the point of simply being stupid as many may be already shaking their heads wondering "WHY Did they lay off that person"?-Pump-N-Dump-Watc h-

Comment 5/03/11: Beware of the Liquid Portal. When you submit solutions, you lose all ownership to what you submitted. Legally, they can steal your entire design, your code and give it to another cheaper entrant of the portal to finish it up for less money. Developers in Liquid Portal have no protection from theft of their hard earned and developed work. Customer will also not know that the solution they just paid for is"tainted" intellectual property which exposes them legally. Watch it guys, don't let hunger and the promise of some food scraps wipe out all you have of value.-anonymous-

It is really a shame that there exists so many ignorant red-necks like yourself. Really? People from up north dress a certain way? And, it annoys you? What does that say about your simple little mind?

Have you taken the time using your “southern hospitality” to show us how to dress? What about your personality? Are you the bight-eyed cheery individual you imply Northerners are not?

And, what is up with the racist remark? This says more about you than anything else. You clearly have a simple mind, you are likely uneducated, and likely lead a simple under-class life.

Glad to see you and your family and friends are getting ridden into the ground and kicked to the curb.

Liquid Portal to the Rescue!!!

Comment 7/30/11: Folks, Posters here were right.
Liquid Portal is going to allow IBM to get rid of all Java and Lotus Notes programmers inside the company. You failed to unionize, so you're gone!

HIRING! Freelance! IBM Liquid Challenge
Stefanini TechTeam is engaging Software Professionals to participate in the Liquid Player Program with IBM.
In the Liquid Challenge Program, IBM project managers outsource design and programming components to freelancers aka IBM Liquid Players. The design and programming components are part of a larger technical application (solution) that IBM is building. IBM will be the one to select the Liquid Players who will design or program a particular component. Once a Liquid Player has successfully designed and/or programmed the specified component, IBM will notify the player that the submittal was successful and accepted. Payment will be issued by Stefanini TechTeam within 15-20 days of successful completion, and range anywhere from $60-840 USD, minus applicable taxes and program fees, and depending on the component that was completed. The payment for the component will be seen by the Player in the Liquid Portal. A component is payable only when approved and accepted by IBM.

Project description:
• 100% work from home opportunity.
• You choose the programming components you want to develop!
• Addresses really small units of work, usually partitioned from a larger unit of work, that can be defined and accomplished within ˝ to 7 days
• Players are paid on successful programming events, meaning that earning potential is unlimited!
• The more successful you are as a Player, the more IBM will request you to work on programming events!

Key Programming Languages Include:
• JAVA/J2EE
• Lotus Notes

Key Platforms Include:
• Windows
• UNIX (Solaris, AIX, Linux)
• DB2
• Websphere

If interested in joining the IBM Liquid Challenge program, please forward your updated Resume to cristina.zarici@stefanini-usa. com -IBM Java/Notes Programmers are History-

Enjoy!!!

These are yankees, not fellow Americans.

Comment 8/03/11: I think by 2014 IBM will largely abandon the USA. It's a reason why USA employees got the paltry stock grant and was to just dangle a carrot so IBM can string along as much of it's USA workforce as possible so IBM can follow it's purge of USA workers without any exodus of critical workers leaving before IBM wants them to. IBM plays you USA employees as fools. Look at IBM Chile and Argentina? The USA IBMer who is not an Alliance member has no backbone.-going-going-and soon gone-

Go get em Sammy! Thank you for making my IBM stock go to da moon!!!
