HP’s Meg Whitman follows Marissa Mayer’s lead: All Hands On Deck

Then this article from the NY Times Bits blog says that there has not been a work policy change at HP. Apparently the company has just made more room for those working at home to come work in the offices if they want.

Two recent books (by guys) advocate for getting out of the office:

Remote: Office Not Required, by Jason Fried and David Hansson

The Year Without Pants, by Scott Berkun

Here’s a blog post at HBR penned by Mr. Berkun, an overview of his book.

And slightly more locally, my version of Patch.com asks, “Who works from home?” (Though I’m not quite sure how to make sense of this map. Except to say that more than 200 people in my neighborhood work at home. What are they all doing each day?)

(Bad) Marketing

Book: QR Codes Kill Kittens

Kind of a funny video of author rant about idiotic use of QR codes. At bottom of page. (Should have been at the top of the page, I think.)

(Good) Marketing

Angry Young Woman Uses Her ‘Telekinetic Powers’ in a NYC Cafe

This is quite amusing. Promotion for the remake of Carrie.

Thanks @PeterWiggins
