For some reason this brand of comprehensive monitoring of your every move while at a computer sent extra chilly chills down my spine.  I think I'd consider another career if every keystroke, website I viewed and detailed timing recorded between mouse moves and actual completion of tasks were recorded.  Yack  Vomit

HOLYSHIT. That is bean counter 'tude run amok man.

What that points to is HR hiring the WRONG people, or a fantastically cynical and paranoid upper management team.

Can you imagine the time-burden and revenue loss just going through what your people are doing? Talk about the anti-profitability squad.  Roll Eyes

What ever happened to quiet brainstorming Huh?

If my worth as a developer was measured in keystrokes and bytes accrued in class files I would have been replaced by some Watson years ago

Didnt see this at the time!

The most creative , productive places have pool tables, no time clocks, beer kegs,
hooters giirls, whiteboard walls,
workout rooms, mandatory on the clock drinking and goofing off..... and salary pay.
And everybody that wworks there does a good job for the company even when nno one
is looking.

WAYYYY more productive than  this crap... what just slipped up on ppl

(sigh! those were the days)

or slipped RIGHT BY ppl in the last 10 years was now even the average obsolete
eee pc netbook has enough batt power storage, and 3g connectivity to video , audio
keystroke and avi/screengrab everything your doing at all times.

A cheap smart phone droid and a justin.tv account will archive 24 hours a day
on the flash media server everything all day long if you want.

Unless you went amish like 20 years ago and stopped going to the dmv your face
is your fingerprint and ur in the system!

'the tao of programming:'


              6.1

When managers hold endless meetings, the programmers write games.  When
accountants talk of quarterly profits, the development budget is about
to be cut.  When senior scientists talk blue sky, the clouds are about
to roll in.

Truly, this is not the Tao of Programming.

When managers make commitments, game programs are ignored.  When
accountants make long-range plans, harmony and order are about to be
restored.  When senior scientists address the problems at hand, the
problems will soon be solved.

Truly, this is the Tao of Programming.

              6.2

Why are programmers non-productive?
Because their time is wasted in meetings.

Why are programmers rebellious?
Because the management interferes too much.

Why are the programmers resigning one by one?
Because they are burnt out.

Having worked for poor management, they no longer value their jobs.

sometimes i do my best debugging in a waking coma/nap transition.


6.4

A manager went to his programmers and told them: "As regards to your
work hours: you are going to have to come in at nine in the morning and
leave at five in the afternoon."  At this, all of them became angry and
several resigned on the spot.

So the manager said: "All right, in that case you may set your own
working hours, as long as you finish your projects on schedule."  The
programmers, now satisfied, began to come in a noon and work to the wee
hours of the morning.

At the medical website I worked for, I attached a USB sensor to my chair that would set a webpage to show if I was in or out of my chair. Graphs and everything.

In response to boss saying I wasn't working if I wasn't in my chair.

I built my adsense empire sitting in that chair from that point forward.
