Submission + - Micromanagement, or good business practice?

RxScram writes: I have been working at my current job for almost 2 years. About 6 months ago, my manager decided he was too busy, and basically promoted one of my coworkers to be a "middle manager". This former coworker, and now middle manager, keeps adding new administrative burdens. Today he added his most recent... he wants me to start keeping a log where I track my work activities for the day every 30 minutes. He had wanted to do every 15 minutes, but I was at least able to talk him up from that. Does this seem excessive to anybody else, and does anybody else have horror stories about their micromanaging boss?
