Charles - there is a body of research being done on what's known as  
"reverse brain drain" or "brain recirculation" - I wouldnt be tech  
determinist and say its "Because of the Internet" but there are  
various issues Economic and socio-cultural that surround the IT  
industry playing into this.

here's a reference I know of  through personal dialogue - (of course)  
and his biblio etc might take you to more readings in this are.

Technologies in Enhancing Processes of Entrepreneurship and  
Globalization in Indian Software Companies in The Electronic Journal  
of Information Systems in Developing Countries, Vol 26
