A potato in the pants & Werner Herzog reading "Go the F**k to Sleep"

Tonight it is actually not them, but me.  The last few nights?

The big one claimed a potato mysteriously materialized in his pajama pants.  Then he produced the potato.  It is sitting on the kitchen counter now.  Friday night, he saw it there while I was cooking dinner and asked what I was going to do with it.

I answered, "Cook it up and serve it to you!"  He looked shocked.  I said, "Well, then...  Don't go putting perfectly good food in your pants then if you don't plan on eating it later."

How To Lead Clever People (Forbes India Magazine)

February 3, 2012. 1.

Forbes India Magazine - How To Lead Clever People:

Clever people are employees whose skills are not easily replicated and who add disproportionate value to their organizations. Often, these people are smarter than their bosses and most of them don’t really want to be ‘led’. That’s what they say, anyway; whether or not they mean it is another question. The ones we studied for our book actually needed organizations in order to express their skills and talents.

Photo of the Day by the King of Spamalot & "Mountain Cats" by Talkdemonic

From 000-FB Photo of the Day

Photo of the Day, October 12, 2011. Taken October 17, 2009. Butte Creek Scout Ranch. Near Scotts Mill, Oregon. October 17, 2009.

View this photo and buy prints on deviantART. 

 I am the King of Spamalot.  I just had an email go out through ReverbNation to about 56 people I know about being a part of a mailing list I am putting together (though will probably never use). I didn't think much of it, since it is to people I know.

A few minutes later, though, I realized that my name might not be on it anywhere, just Retrovirus Lab. So yeah, that was me. Let's see if I just got myself kicked off that service!

On top of it, as I am connecting with some other groups through these sites, my social networks are getting pretty jammed up with notices. I am trying to keep them on the Retrovirus Lab page, not on my regular Facebook page, but they tend to go their first before I can get them off. Only leaving the really good ones up there.

Good ones like these folks below. Here is a song, just for the hell of it... Discovered them on my travels through the interwebs today... Probably won't get to a picture today, either. So I threw one up at the top of this post and am calling it the Photo of the Day.

Meanwhile, everyone was home sick today. Everyone, but me, is feeling better now. Blah. Maybe that can be my excuse...

Cross posting this everywhere...

How the Remote Workforce Is Changing

February 3, 2012. 1.

Spotted this on Mashable this morning...  Worth a read, some excerpts below...

How the Remote Workforce Is Changing:
While once working from home was considered a bit of a novelty, we argue that it is now so mainstream it’s more interesting to consider how the remote workforce is changing.


“For the longest time, remote working was regarded as a pipedream. As its acceptance slowly built, companies started to see some benefit in reduced costs, but it was probably done more to appease employees and retain someone who might have otherwise left. In 2011, remote working has become ‘mainstream,’” says Michael D. Haberman, SPHR, VP & director of HR services at Omega HR Solutions.
