93: Workflow Interruption Org-Charts

Andrew has turned into a hermit like Brett and Brett is now going out to offices. Black is white, up is down, and are you allowed to interrupt your coworkers?

Highlights include:

  • Sometimes moving vans don't show up
  • How much coworking is actually going on?
  • Do knowledge workers need less collaboration than people think?
  • There is a benefit to being around other humans, but it might not be getting more work done
  • Interruption goes two ways - the person whose workflow was interrupted and the person who needs the data to continue
  • How to do internet searches should be it's own high school course
  • SECRET REVEALED: The IRS has no idea what they are doing either
  • Monopoly pricing is a thing

Bonus: After the ending, you can hear Andrew talk more about his house and wifi. Or skip it. Probably just skip it.
