This wasn’t a review, it was an attempt at a searing indictment of a culture that supports micromanagement and pointless statistic-mongering. If the phrase “track as much teams as possible to make much more general conclusions” doesn’t give you a screaming case of the willies, I suggest a long, hard look at the contents of your soul, if it still exists. This mess doesn’t “make sense;” it doesn’t prove anything other than sometimes people in offices type things at different rates, and if your goal is now to “track ideas,” that’s even worse, more ephemeral, and depressing. “Ideas as metrics.” I can see the dollar signs massing atop the piles of crumpled spirits already.

Maybe consider the fact that a lot of us reading posts like this see what you’re describing as a Phildickian, dystopic nightmare. “Not taking it seriously” serves only to perpetuate a sick, stress-inducing paradigm that will likely destroy the well-being and contentment of at least a few of your employees and their families.

EMPLOYEES OF .IO: FLEE NOW, BEFORE YOU ARE CRUSHED BENEATH THE WHEELS OF “EFFICIENCY!” YOU ARE MORE THAN NUMBERS, AND YOUR FINGERS ARE MORE THAN KEYSTROKES! TEAR THE DIODES OF MICROMANAGEMENT FROM YOUR FOREHEADS AND TOSS YOUR COMPROMISED KEYBOARDS INTO THE DUST-BIN! FLEE!!

(And, it was an opportunity to point out that you seem to have totally missed the boat when it comes to Adventure Time, whose ethos seems diametrically opposed to the value-squandering activities required of “metrics-mongers.”)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
