I don’t really get into webcomics much, but I’ve been really enjoying xkcd “a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.”

It’s pretty geeky stuff, generally. Some of it reminds me of jokes friends would make in college (like thing jwerberg said about the Apollo 11 space shuttle and it having the same computing power as a TI-85 “and that thing can’t even do tan 90!”)

There are some of my favorites.

I may relate a little too much to some.

Some are at the heights of geek humor while others are just sort of random.

And then there are the ones about love.

impressed, I know

Business Week has a article about Best Buy’s new corporate philosophy of measuring output rather than hours at a desk. They’re basically encouraging people to come in late or leave early as long as they get their work done.

It’s sort of like flex-time, but it isn’t because the metric (hours vs. output, however that’s measured) is different.

I do enjoy collaboration so doing away with the office entirely sounds like a bad idea to me, but something along this line sounds pretty good.
