Will Wonders Never Cease?

Computerworld ran an interesting article on the social tics that IT workers sometimes may have. Read the real reasons why management are so happy to fire their ass and send their job half way around the world, thus alleviating an immense irritation and providing an opportunity to rack up huge amounts of air miles researching the IT outsourced operation in India, China, whereever. Cost savings, yeah don't believe it, most 'business decisions' are political, outsourcing is the price you pay for wearing 'g3t fr4gg3d', 'I am r00t' or 'I read your email' t-shirts around the office and leeching at the attractive golddigger of a marketing manager the chairman foisted on the company. Remember 'Microsoft Certified' means that you are commodity that can be bought or discarded like a PC.

Stop the press, management board members found to be thinking! Next up, uber brains McKinsey have launched the results have launched their second survey (free registration required) on what C-level execs think. Wait a moment, C-level execs don't have to think, that's the reason why the hired McKinsey? Anyway, the key takeout points are not exactly surprising
Google unleashes more whoop-ass on Microsoft, Gmail the Hotmail killer just got better, list of improvements can be found here. Don't have an account yet? Maybe its because you have no friends to send you an invitation to join, socialise more you'll feel better for it.

The new Blade film Trinity is due out in December, my colleague and Balham's mack daddy Cad Bwoy flagged up the following link. Troubled by the demise of the vampire race, their partners in repression of humans the government go toe-to-toe with the daywalker. Much booty is kicked by Blade! No sign of Whistler though.

Nuu medja prostitutes e-consultancy.com have a paid for report on the importance of online PR. OK, might they feel online PR is important because they are an online organisation that sells subscription services to PR agencies? Charging for this is like Next charging for their catalogue.

Digital terrorist Orrin Hatch plans to emulate muslim extremist Osama Bin Laden by disrupting Americans basic rights and way of life in pursuit of his own sick and twisted beliefs. Senator Orrin Hatch admitted that he wanted to steamroll through his flawed piece of legislation though Capitol Hill. Unfortunately like Bin Laden he is funded by shadowy supporters as this research shows. Like September 11, deeply engrained systems and a lack of imagination by legislators have prevented government operatives from taking him out, going behind the Lincoln memorial and giving him some high velocity lead poisoning. You can make your feelings known to Orrin by contacting him via his website here.
