Link: The virtual furniture police
The Virtual Furniture Police is ultimately an unflattering view of how IT departments too often attempt to have a great deal of control over user desktops. The opening paragraph summarizes things nicely:
This is a review, of sorts, of the book Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams by Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister. Then a segue to explain how typical corporate IT policies contravene some of the excellent advice in this book.
And the title is lovely; I think I have a new catchphrase.
