Strategies for Simulating A Hard Day at the Office

Wednesday, May 21st, 2003

David Wiskus gives new meaning to the term “working lunch.” The Denver tech-support worker installed a program on his Handspring Visor hand-held that allowed him to manipulate the screen on his office computer from a booth at a local diner.

As he lingered for hours over burgers and fries, he could actually open windows and move documents around on his screen via the hand-held — creating the impression to anyone who walked by that the diligent Mr. Wiskus had just stepped away from his desk.

It has never been easier to be a white-collar slacker. While the uninitiated are still grousing about how mobile technology has created a 24/7 work culture and sabotaged their private time, a savvier crowd has moved on to a more rewarding pursuit: using technology to make it look like you’re working when you’re not.

Tweaking Ongoing

Wednesday, May 7th, 2003

Continual tweaking of the site – primarily driven by my need for self-gratification – has resulted in an attempt to add a bit of life to the screen. Knowing that people must have something to draw them in, I decided to reinvent the emporium portal. The result?

Check out the new, improved, wowie-zowie weidemannia emporium. First you look – and then you BUY!.

Remember, these designs are exclusively available from weidemannia. When your friends ask, make sure to tell them where you picked up the cool shit.

A Decorative Mop Stinks

Wednesday, May 7th, 2003

– or another way to say it is that “a rose by any other names smells as sweet.” Regardless, it matters little what the executives name their fancy-schmancy new organizations, or what sort of positions or titles they assign. If the people are the same “old boys”, then nothing has changed.

Something stinks. Perhaps, its the same old mop – attempting to sweep things clean. But all that’s happening is the crap is being smeared around on the floor and nothing is being accomplished.

“A decorative mop stinks.” Remember that!
