A suggestion from Avi Charkham:
When I learn at work I need posts of no more than 20-30 lines. I want a quick in/quick out situation where I can snap up a bit of information and go on. It would help if long posts would be split, not randomly but according to some logical structure.
The way we think Continue reading Less is more
Roaming around the dusty corners of the net this afternoon, I came upon this incediary quote:
Nestling warm and sleepy in your company, like the asp in Cleopatra’s bosom, is a department whose employees spend 80% of their time on routine administrative tasks. Nearly every function of this department Continue reading Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose
Here’s a simpler rendition of what I was trying to ask yesterday.
