Interesting that weekend have by far the least individual viewer hits. I am definitely contributing my fair to those work hours though :) Keep it up people, no time to be on over the weekends if you're out climbing! Later.

I started working in a large corp. office just as photocopies were being introduced - leases charged by the page!

While there have been some production increases - elimination of secretaries for typing, phone messages, filing etc. I really wonder what productivity would be if workers were not hooked up to the www; no office cell phone usage, no office texting; no blackberries - 10% - 15% staff reduction?.

I retired 3 years ago from a senior level mgmt level. Here's some suggestions if you are still working - when meeting with with others of any level
cell phone - don't look at it or answer
blackberry - don't use
computer - don't use
Give the person you are with your full attention - you will set yourself apart from the herd.
