Revenge of the Geeks February 26, 2007

Did you get the memo? The 2.0 phenomena isn’t replacing the office – it’s just making it more productive. Whether you call it Office 2.0 or Office 3.0, a new generation of productivity tools is reinvigorating the way we work, and more importantly, the way we work together. The TPS report may still be mandatory, but this time it will be a collaborative online document, cutting expenditures, reducing waste, and increasing efficiency. Lumbergh may still need you to work on Saturday, but this time you can do it from home via web-based spreadsheets and documents, instant message client, VOIP, and a whole host of next-generation tools.

At last, the cubicle is a concept of the past. Telecommuting is allowing environmentally and cost-conscious Dilbert sympathizers to spend more of their lifetime doing useful things, like not sitting in traffic jams.

Similarly, Web and Office n.0 are bringing software for the masses, finally allowing us to efficiently collaborate instead of individually looking after islands of documents and files.

Now if I could only remember where I put that stapler?

Some people reassure me about mankind (and, for that matter, about manhood). Michael Franti currently is one of them.

Des champs de chanvre qui chantent l’avenir February 14, 2006

Il faut croire que le chanvre a fait naître des vocations parmi la jeunesse… On s’inquiétait de la part toujours plus réduite des agriculteurs parmi la population active française ayant un emploi. Eh bien messieurs les politiciens, réjouissez-vous !

Nos campagnes françaises, en voie de désertification, vont se repeupler et les champs en jachère redevenir des surfaces agricoles utiles. Oui, car la jeunesse, préoccupée par les problèmes environnementaux, a décidé qu’il fallait réhabiliter le chanvre, pour le bien de l’humanité et de nos campagnes, hélas désertées au profit de mégalopoles surpeuplées et surpolluées.

N’ayez crainte, leur aspiration est sincère. Depuis longtemps ils rêvent de porter des slips en fibres de chanvre. L’un veut en isoler les murs de sa maison, l’autre souhaite qu’éole souffle dans la voile en chanvre de son bateau.
