"Whenever you are about to be oppressed, you have a right to resist oppression: whenever you conceive yourself to be oppressed, conceive yourself to have a right to make resistance, and act accordingly. In proportion as a law of any kind--any act of power, supreme or subordinate, legislative, administrative, or judicial, is unpleasant to a man, especially if, in consideration of such its unpleasantness, his opinion is, that such act of power ought not to have been exercised, he of course looks upon it as oppression: as often as anything of this sort happens to a man--as often as anything happens to a man to inflame his passions,--this article, for fear his passions should not be sufficiently inflamed of themselves, sets itself to work to blow the flame, and urges him to resistance. Submit not to any decree or other act of power, of the justice of which you are not yourself perfectly convinced. If a constable call upon you to serve in the militia, shoot the constable and not the enemy;--if the commander of a press-gang trouble you, push him into the sea--if a bailiff, throw him out of the window. If a judge sentence you to be imprisoned or put to death, have a dagger ready, and take a stroke first at the judge."

I first encountered a guy standing at his desk several decades ago, when I was a fresh-faced attorney at Disney. One of my colleagues had ordered a lectern to do his contract drafting, and he said it was for health reasons, sitting for a long time was simply too painful. Over the years I have seen more folks standing, but most folks who work in an office fly their desk from a seated position. At the Consumer Electronics Show in January I was intrigued with Autonomous, whose cost-effective booth was actually a couple dozen desks. I have been trying their SmartDesk for over a month, and I like it.

Managing the autonomous evolution - Businessday NG


Humans are now generating an estimated 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every single day, with more data being created in the past two years than in all of human history. Managing this growing flood is complex and the task comes with a high level of responsibility.
