I remember when Eliot bought me a Rolex watch. That was many years ago. I wore that watch like a billboard pronouncing our success. Friends, family, and business contacts would often remark that I was one of only a few people who owned a Rolex. Almost immediately, I noticed that the watch didn’t keep accurate time, but who cared, it was really a piece of jewelry.

As I get older, I get more nervous when I’m driving our car. I don’t drive that often, so that is part of the problem. The other part is that I have some kind of perception problem where I sense that the car next to me is much closer than it actually is.

Every once in a while I test my memory to make sure I am still all there. Then Eliot insists that he tells me something one minute and, five minutes later, I ask him the same thing again. Personally, I don’t think I am listening to him, but he thinks I am losing it.
In one of the biggest decision reversals in the digital world, Marissa Mayer, new CEO of Yahoo, decisively told her employees over the weekend that all remote employees better start checking in on a full-time basis at company headquarters by June. “You have to have interactions and experiences with co-workers, and that can only happen at the Yahoo offices.” This statement is so “yesterday” that I just can’t imagine that they stick to this plan. There is probably a major revolution brewing within the walls of Yahoo. Continue reading
In case you didn’t know it, the new CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Mayer, was one of the first people to work at Google when it was first established. Mayer started an uproar last Friday when she told all of the Yahoo employees they now have to work on site at the company headquarters, no longer with home privileges: No excuses!
