Are you a human being or a computer?
As you said: "Pick a style, pick a system, and STICK WITH IT."
I believe that N. Korea is going to be the cause of a nuclear war in the next five years.
All the anger of the world is directed towards some happening and this will probably be it.
"A lot of people hid. There were all these employees [working remotely] and nobody knew they were still at Yahoo."
It's amazing that a company can have people on the payroll, and the managers forget about them..
>>If you read the SF novels detailing life in Libertopia, you'll find that, as if by magic, citizens voluntarily donate enough of their income to feed, clothe, and house those that are poor through no fault of their own. They purchase, build, and staff a full parks system out of the goodness of their hearts.
>This is how things used to be done.
When? Please come up with a concrete time boxed example of a country doing this. I'm pretty sure that I could look at the details and come up with a more accurate story.
I thought we learned that the overall water content of the planet is steadily increasing due to gravitational attraction of the planet sucking in comets water deposits and the like. Sure in a few hundred years it's not much, and I don't imagine water mining the asteroids or capturing comets technologically.
You obviously aren't in their target business market.
No, they want CIO's, CTO's and CEO's thinking that they could have that much fun at "work" if only they had the kit.
And yes, these people do have the mindset that matches the ad you portrayed so it appears to be actually well matched.
So if a placebo cures *your* cancer you should try to get it to come out of remission?!?
That is essentially what you are advocating.
A sample size of one is all that is needed if it works for that one person, especially of the desired result is something like "happiness".
YOUR milage may vary...
There is a difference between trade secrets and general know how.
I agree that if an employee is divulging trade secrets and they had a contractual obligation not to that is one thing.
Being able to create a business similar to the one they came from is not in any way remarkable or wrong.
> It's quite another if recruiters from Palm are actively poaching their competitors' employees.
And this is what is wrong with your outlook as well as the outlook of most corporations.
You seem to feel that these companies own their employees, keeping them on their "employee farms" and only their King can kill them.
Kind of like cattle.
Now, please let me know what is wrong with receiving an offer of employment at another firm for a better salary?
