When I was entering the work force we had to endure the unimaginable hardship of showing up to work at a preset time. Like 8:00 am or something. We didn't get to choose that time, either. The company chose. They didn't even conduct a poll! It was barbaric.
Things have changed a bit since then. Because we're judged by our results instead of our work habits, it's no wonder that some of us have come to blend our personal interests with our professional interests. In the past we were only allowed to do that while standing around a contraption called a "water cooler." We used to have to draw our water from those things before somebody figured out how to mold plastic into a container shaped like a water bottle.
For those of you who take a stroll or two in the direction of Facebook during the workday, BigAdmin has created a Facebook page. If you become a fan, as over 500 of you already have, BigAdmin content can come to you. Either as individual postings or as RSS feeds. Just enter "BigAdmin" in the Search box at the top right of your Facebook page, and it'll take you to the right place. You can also get there by clicking on the small "F" icon just to the left of the BigAdmin search box.
I don't remember where I heard it, but I heard Facebook referred to as "social not-working." Don't worry, those are the same people who used to rush by the water cooler looking all busy-body with the racing form attached to their clipboard.
