Do You Remember What You Do at Work?

The guy at Programmers’ Stone has a fascinating piece describing work in today’s world.

…when did I stop doing real work? By that I mean something where there is some kind of product or useful output at the end of the working day. Annoyingly I couldn’t decide on a date. The problem being the  gradual creep of valueless activity has infiltrated the workplace  to such an extent that I feel sure many of us now live in a world of virtual work.

At the end he quotes a joke:

Someone asks: how many people work at your company?

Answer: About half of them.

It’s definitely a very nice read.
