“Wasting Time”

DeskTime, a firm that automates time sheets, posted an absurd infographic yesterday. This snip made me chuckle:

Most people I know think using the net makes them more productive. “Socializing with co-workers” is the primary way they learn things. Probably some of the long lunches and breaks occur because people learn more in coffee rooms and cafeterias than in classrooms. These are time-wasters?

As for the applications, my colleague Jane Hart’s Top 100 Tools for Learning 2011 has Twitter in the #1 slot and YouTube as #2. Unproductive? I don’t think so.

And email and Word are productive? Give me a break.

I would really, really hate to work for these guys.
