Patriot´s Day?

April 17 2006

Here's how much the world is changing... When I joined Lotus twelve years ago, Patriot's Day was a big deal.  Everyone in the Lotus US operations had the day off, even if we didn't know what the holiday was all about!  Fast forward to 2006, and I didn't even see it coming.  I did wonder why so many people were offline today, but I had just figured it was people taking long Easter weekends.  Hah.  

Phyical location of a company's headquarters (or division headquarters) is far less relevant in 2006 than in 1996.  The "work day" of 9-5 is meaningless.  And were I still living in the Fenway, I could have been productive today with a laptop on the sidelines of the Boston Marathon and not let the blocked roads get in my way.

(Thanks for the reminder, Stephen)
