Now bring on the BB bashing!
Or, if you're feeling irritable, string them along for a while and then tell them this is what you do - every day. "Talk to you tomorrow!"
Oh, and fuck you FCC for being so damned useless.
So I guess I agree.. if your employees need constant supervision then you need them in eye's reach.
You offer no claims for any of your assertions, even hilarious ones like commuting being "a good way to clear your brain." Because because being crammed in subways or stuck in traffic is really most relaxing.
You know what clears my brain? In the afternoons I'll often take a little lie-down after lunch. 20 minutes or so. Maybe watch part of a TV show. Then I get back to my desk feeling rested and ready to tackle the rest of the afternoon at maximum productivity. I'm sure you're just horrified at the thought.
One thing I do not miss about working in an office is all the utterly pointless meetings I had to attend. All too easy for some middle manager to rope the team into a meeting where, as per usual, half the people are typing away on their laptops and paying little attention.

I do realize that we're talking about post-Dice Slashdot here, but this is one of the lamer website shillings I've seen in a while. Honestly, the article itself isn't nearly as sensational as this clickbait summary would have you believe.
hold on.. (shouting at someone else) "I'm on an important call!! It's about our credit card debt"
Ok, hold on, looking for wallet, think it's in the kitchen..
Pots crashing, cat screesch
Wait hang on here it is, ok.. aw crap, I forgot the credit card is buy the computer upstairs, hold on.. How's your day going?
Might wrap it all up with a clown honk and some profanity.
This is a great read - a small-time cable maker basically telling monster suck it after they sent their default "infringement" claim. http://www.bluejeanscable.com/...
