I really find this contention, that "getting large enough to be noticed, it gets the attention of good, but low cost programmers in China, India, and Eastern Europe, who have access to the source code" to be borderline absurd, absent any real evidence to support it. No examples are offered of services companies getting squashed by these developing world masses, just a contention, and one designed to prey on our western preconceptions at that.

Given that the final conclusion is entirely self-serving ("the business model I have chosen is the workable one and those other ones are not") I don't really have much time for the piece. It's got some interesting historical notes, but the sweeping conclusions are not supported by the evidence on offer.
