How to save your job. That is, if you really want
your job. This is a great signal of the perfect futility of labour in the corpocracy. Not to mention the perfect example of how the machines have rebuilt our social structures and psychologies. I've gotten a lot of flak for saying that lately, so here's a great example.
Look, I am not trying to be facile or provocative when I talk about 'machines', 'humans', and strategy. My point is actually really simple: I think it's extremely bad strategy to let machines strip purpose, meaning, and excitement from work, because it creates inertia, raises barriers to innovation, creates communication, coordination, and enforcement costs, etc, etc - I could write an almost endless list of wrongs. The interesting bit is that the machine I'm talking about is, of course, in this case, the corporation itself, which is an organization-machine in the same way that a nuclear reactor is a power-machine.
