I'm a history professor, not an economist; but damn, I would kill to have this guy's lecture presence. What a badass class that must be to be in.

Sounds like it's time to brush up on Cicero's 'Ideal Orator' and Aristotle's 'Rhetoric.'

The Mothership
funny you should say that, since I teach Cicero.

It would almost be hard to pay attention to what he's saying though, it would be so amazing just to see him warping around the classroom doing his super fast drawing thing...

Zuckerberg once remarked that "The Social Network" had to invent a revenge scheme for his motivation because the idea that some people just wanna make stuff isn't very Hollywood.

I program and play music, so these examples ain't shocking. "Developers, given free time, will fix bugs? Musicians play for very little money? No way!" I guess that for the Readers' Digest set, it seems novel. But I'm equally baffled at what motivates those folks.

Also, companies manufacturing "purpose" for their employees is pointless. Someone who couldn't come up with a more lively plan than studying business was an 80%-er to begin with. You can give them purpose, but they'll still find a way to give the smallest shit possible. It's not an impediment to progress, hell, it's capitalism.

Side note: playing music won't get you laid? I knew economists were removed from reality, but that's like weapons-grade naivety. Kernel hacking, on the other hand...

Neat! Where can I hear your music? By not being a record label drone shilling through a YouTube popup, I am far more inclined to enjoy your music and appreciate its ingenuity over its technicality, though if you melt my face I will become an advertising node for no monetary reward. It is quite amazing.

Nice. I play piano and pedal steel guitar, and right now I'm excited to be working with these guys:

(tinyurl'd so the bandmates don't see what a dick I am on the internet)

The record's not nearly done... what's up there are a few last-minute mixes we did so that we'd have something to hand out on tour, but it'll give you an idea. The band's based out of Philly and there's more in the works, so if you like it and are in the area, keep in touch (my name is John).

I like the music. Anyway to follow you for when an album is released?

pastorofmuppets

Feel free to friend us on FB. The album will be done by winter and at that point we'll probably have some stuff to post about.

Man, money SUCKS.

Not if you're in a menial, dead end job, then it really rocks!

My manager has the good sense to just leave me alone. He tries to insulate all his people from the ridiculous MPOTW (Management Paradigm of the Week) that the VP's learn at whatever retreats and just lets us work on what we think is important.

It's tremendously empowering and all he really has to do is come to the meetings we keep inviting him to so he knows what's getting fixed.

Occasionally the higher-ups will ask for something specific and then he'll nudge us in that direction but mostly he just lets us fix what the customers are having the most pain with and not only does it make us feel good to help the customers, the customers like working with us and will actually put up with a lot of stuff because they know we care and will fix it for them after we fix the bigger issues.

There are like 3 or 4 guys there that don't even have to work anymore. We have enough to retire but we actually enjoy working there, so we stay.

My father does exactly this for his employees as well, he acts as a buffer to upper management bullshit. I never really understood why people loved working for him until I had my own job (elsewhere).

My best days of work is when no one is around. This is something they will never understand. I no longer care about the money, i get enough, I want time for myself.

Very similar to the model of Academia before it became business oriented. Still you can universities that respect this kind of model.

Also, finding purpose in one's work is a socialist conspiracy.
