It's all fun and games until these things get hacked a million at a time from across the world.

I read the whole article and it boiled down to this. She goofs off a lot at work and is not only sick of getting caught slacking off, she actually resents her old boss for making her work. So her brilliant idea is to monitor people all the time, that way people will never slack off since they know they are being watched! Also we can use the surveilance to finally bring to justice all those who bully, shout at or harass others and who have until now been getting away with it. Dumb biatch actually wrote that and got paid for it.

Does it involve having a cage filled with rats strapped to my face? No? I'm all in BB.

Yet is the arrival of Big Brother in the corporate world quite such a bad thing?

Yes.

Swear I'm going to end up living in a cabin in the woods like the Unabomber someday.

And they'll still be tracking my crazy ass.

In the future, everything will be monitored and recorded.  All the time.

There are pros and cons to this.

That's why I told them that Bermuda in the off season was what terrified me the most.

There are guards in prisons watching all the time, and those are the safest places of all!

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a Dilbert cartoon that never ends, forever.

There's a reason why people install CCTV security systems, or use dashcams.

So, rather than measure meritocracy based on performance, the accountants will focus on a whole new set of data that is only tangentially associated with merit? Super.

Hope she gets a private office for this.  Room 101 is open for her!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Room_101

Except Big brother and his Sister are Step-siblings, so it's actually okay, but the sister doesn't know this and the brother uses this knowledge to keep the sister at bay.

/what?
