> It's also not a win/win, and here's why: > 1) Most people are not most productive at home. In fact, most people are significantly less productive at home due to many more distractions around them.
There are many distractions at the office too. Loud co-workers chatting on the phone, etc.
> 2) Commuting (at least relatively short commutes) has been shown to be a good way of clearing your brain, and getting it into or out of work mode. It doesn't really hurt productivity unless you're doing it for hours.
Commuting has been shown to increase stress levels.
> 3) Skype does not make communication with coworkers a snap. It imparts a major cognitive overhead.
Well most companies give their workers a telephone at their desk, and Skype is no different than that. Actually, Skype is better than that because you can see the other person and their facial expressions.
> 4) Communication does not just come down to a few meetings a week that could (with more effort) be done via Skype. By working at home you remove any chance of corridor conversations, which typically, are by far the most productive communication in an office.
It probably evens out. There are probably as many useless corridor conversations that waste your time, as there are useful ones.
"Lush" is a well known brand. If people go to www.youtube.com/lush they would expect to see Lush cosmetics, not some random guy. Similar for www.youtube.com/mcdonalds. Not sure what the issue is here. He doesn't own the site.
Never heard of Lush before. I suspect you are a Lush employee.
You are overlooking the key part of the statement, "Hadley is a Sandusky waiting to be exposed." Perhaps you are unaware that Jerry Sandusky was a long time assistant coach at Penn State who operated a charity for young, fatherless boys. It was revealed that he had been using his position for years to get into a position to rape some of those young boys.
Why do you presume that the commenter was referring to Jerry Sandusky? Maybe the commenter was referring to a different Sandusky.
In a lot of cases, I'd rather trust Lastpass's security over that of a native website,
You would be trusting that Lastpass's security is NEVER broken though, because once it's broken, they have ALL your passwords. If only one native website is broken though, then only one of your passwords has been taken.
Just as a side note, if you're ever on the phone with an complete asshole, hang up and call right back. Most times you'll get a different person.
Or a complete idiot (rather than asshole). Yesterday I talked to someone at Comcast who kept asking me for my new cable modem's serial number. I gave it to her 5 times before she finally said that it's too long for the serial number. Then she mentioned MAC address, and I was like "Oh you want the MAC address? Then why did you keep saying serial number?" My phone actually disconnected a few seconds later, so when I called back, I talked to a different person who actually had a clue.
What facebook needs to do is add a dislike button like youtube has.
Youtube changed their comment system so that if you click dislike, nothing happens. It doesn't decrement the number of thumbs up anymore.
If I want to comment on my local government's facebook page to complain about something why the fuck do I have to LIKE them first.
I've commented on FB pages without liking them. Not sure if they changed that recently.
