Blah, blah, blah, can I have the floor? Blah, blah, blah, I second that. Blah, blah, blah, 15 day non-voting probationary period. Blah, blah, blah, vote for a committee vice-chair. Blah, blah, blah, I would like to propose adding an item to the agenda.
So, I am presently in the middle of an 8am to noon conference call. We are following Roger's Rules of Order. While this is all Open Source “Word”-style document save formats in XML, this is also bureaucracy distilled and condensed into a pure, evil, and powerful form. Wake me if I fall asleep before the end of the call.
Right now, I could be living the American techie's dream of working naked from home. I cannot bring myself to do it, though. The thought of being stark-raving-nekkid while talking on the phone to a bunch of geeks and business drones (all male) would feel like phone-sex gone horribly wrong.
