This story appeared about three weeks ago, and I've kept meaning to post about it without really finding the opportunity. But all that time it's been with me, a pleasant source of underlying amusement in the midst of everything else I deal with in the day-to-day hurly-burly of running Agate Publishing, Inc.

Thank you, Google. You do so much for us, all the time. Thank you for furnishing the hard data we've apparently been crying out for in order to better understand how to prioritize management tasks. Thank you for showing us that what employees want is exactly what, you know, employees have been saying they want, at least since unions were able to get them things like fair wages and weekends off. Just--thank you.
