That's got to be painful; perhaps you mean silicone?

Back in the mid '90s I saw a Lycos ad in Wired Magazine that had two photos, one of a tech office and another of someone's boobs... with the text "silicon valley - find what you're looking for" or something like that.

wth

why would you avoid duplicating the subject and first line of entry?

i hate it when i get email where the first sentence is split between the subject field and the body...

Despite all of the t-shirts, I think that meeting still looks like it would upset me quite a bit. Upset as in make me angry.

Run or knit

Did the startup to megacorp purchase a few years ago, and the meetings - ugg.

Meetings to discuss why you aren't getting your work done fast enough - that's my all-time fave.

So I took up knitting in meetings and on conference calls. Its the only way I can feel productive, and it takes zero brain power. We have a great little cottage industry making socks!

Re: Run or knit

Yeah. I think the problem isn't necessarily that a company has meetings (from my various company experience), but that they're soooo glacial and that really, people, not everybody needs to be there.

Particularly not coders, who are usually constantly connected through email, IM, mailing lists, and Bugzilla anyhow. :-)

I think someone should invest in some more chairs.
