On Communication…

Filed under: Uncategorized — jamesone111 @ 9:00 am

We should be able to laugh at some stuff. I guess Microsoft suffers more than most organizations from e-mail overload. I found out about a message that everyone on my team needed to act on – except every one of us mistook it for spam. I think when people say communication is poor this is the kind of thing they mean; it’s a problem people try to solve by creating more intranet sites… not always the right answer.

 I was talking to a new-ish employee this morning who saw the 2004 “Office Values” courtesy of the leak, and Vista prices on turned up on Amazon  – you have to laugh or else you cry.

Bonus links. I’ve got to post something more detailed about things on Ed Bott’s blog – but this link he posted made me laugh.
