My Archives: September 2002

Sometimes while I'm surfing at night I come across a letter that seems to say a lot about the current business climate. If you're bored, check out this internal memo from EDS.
Next week I'll be posting a few new assignments. For now, I'm watching the Oregon State Beavers trounce the Fresno State Bulldogs in football. What a game!

I'm starting work on a piece about the increasing pace of work. The rate at which employees are required to work has picked up tremendously over the last decade, thanks primarily to technology and the desire of corporations to increase their stock price through increased output and efficiency. But at what point does this pick-up outpace employees, and what types of problems happen? I'm looking for insights from experts who can offer some advice that helps entrepreneurs from going overboard. I'm also seeking an entrepreneur or two who has tried to set a reasonable pace in a quickening economy. What advice do you have for other entrepreneurs? Interviews need to be conducted by 10/5.

I'm ending this week still working on two stories. The first is about technology/connectivity and employee downtime. The second is about the order in which one should start a business (see below for more details). I'm looking for entrepreneurs of young companies for both stories, and experts for the latter.
Also, I'm working on a prototype side project where I'm seeking general questions from employees and managers about some workplace dilemma they're having (think Dear Abby) and need advice. I'll fill those who contact me in on the details.
That's it for now. It's been a busy week!
