Well, initially when I posted about Office Shenanigans the thought was to keep the posts coming... but as you can see I haven't revisited the topic since August 17th. I'm so lame.
However, now that some time has passed and I'm feeling motivated to blog more than I have been, this is a perfect time to bring the "series" back, or should I say start the series since there was only one story before now? Shall we get started?
Let's talk about AOL Instant Messenger, which I'm sure you've heard of. Where I work it is strongly encouraged to set up an account for inter-office and more often inter-department communication. We say its for ease in file sharing but really it allows for instantaneous conversation without having to get out of your seat or carry on a face to face conversation with your co-workers. Genius. And we wonder why people are growing more and more dependent on email and less comfortable with phone calls. BUT, this isn't even what I want to talk about, this was just to "explain" why we have it. What I really want to talk about it what the above conversation.
