BANGALORE, India — At the Microsoft Accelerator office here, techies dressed in sandals, jeans, T-shirts and Bermudas hunch over keyboards in library silence. It's a day for beavering away, tightening the nuts and bolts of software. But the evidence of voluble brainstorming is scrawled on whiteboards scattered around the forest of cubicles. There are funnels, flowcharts, and line graphs. These aren't your ordinary cyber coolies. They're the founders of tech startups that Microsoft believes have an outside shot at becoming the Next Big Thing – and the leaders of a quiet revolution underway in India's outsourcing capital.
