Jason Fried of 37signals speaking at #TED : why work doesn’t happens at work

Interesting talk. No wonder I work from my own home/office as much as I possibly can. And quite aligned with a lot of what I see happening around. I like his little sentence: "Twitter and Facebook are the modern smoke breaks." Managers and Meetings (aka M&M's): the two killers of making work happening: Manager: paid to interrupt you. Meetings: there to make you lose time. Managers call them. Meetings are toxic according to Jason. Personally, I hate meetings when I can do the same with a message, a collaborative website, an IM exchange, or a Skype call. Listen on, there is a lot of value in there.
