Poll: Self Importance Test

September 11th, 2007

Via RJ Carpenter is the Self Importance Test. It said I was:

Chris Pirillo

You are most like Chris Pirillo!


You are most like Chris Pirillo. You dominate your brand and do quite well in marketing it.
However, you go out of the way to place the focus on other people as much as possible as a decision on power and authority.
You may have many followers, readers or fans but you rarely let this distract you from your mission and focus.

Which is reasonably good as it was his (now ex) wife Gretchen’s blog which partially got me blogging in the first place (and I never knew she was a tv star under her maiden/current name of Gretchen Hundling).

Techy Fun: Why bother with a laptop?

September 11th, 2007

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

I used to work for a company where the majority of the senior staff all had laptops. And they all had docking stations with a monitor, keyboard and mouse (as they didn’t like using the laptop keyboard as it was “too small”).

When senior management noticed that staff were leaving the laptops on their desks over night (posing a possible security risks), I had to then source and install suitable locks to make sure the laptops couldn’t be moved from the desks.

Could someone please explain to me the reason these staff members were given £1,500+ worth of laptops when a simple desktop unit could have sufficed at half the cost?
