Before you get all worked up, I am not referring to human rights or anything like that.
I am able to multitask. I am productive. I finish my work ahead of schedule when at all possible. What do I like to do when I finish it or while I'm on lunch? Read some RSS feeds.
An ever growing list of blocked and off limit items at my place of employment now contains RSS feeds. Ironically Facebook and Twitter are not blocked.
The mentality that your employees need to be heavily restricted is draconian. Right up there with the "butt in a chair" mentality.
Performers are punished due to the non performers. I am paid to do a job... If I get the job done early, why must I linger? Now that I am forced to sit in a cubical and look for more work, you also take away any mental escape.
Fuck you and your old school ways.
Don't even get me started on the costs you could save by having your employees work from home... I'll save that rant for another day.
