This chapter uses original ethnography to examine how information technology as an industry depends upon a reterritorializing of imperial labor legacies despite the assumed globality and connectedness of high tech. Racial and national difference merge to influence the kind of work available for high-tech workers in Bangalore, making India largely illegible as a site of innovative and globally-connected products.
