There’s a piece by me in The Independent today. About blogs, of course. 12 work related blogs in fact.
Talk Politics has the news on why I’m not linking to it.
Update. I am sent a scanned copy so here it is for you to enjoy:
Er, all the links from the article go to Microsoft.com. Buck up guys.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Timmy Elsewhere.:
Pity so many of them are in the extortion funded sector.
We must be too busy working to pay taxes, that we have less time to blog than those "paid" by the taxpayer.

Tim adds: Ta.
And the quid pro quo was mentioning the book. Ah, ummm, well.

You were born in Torquay? Nice little write up; If I'd left the flat today I'd have bought it as well, ah well...
I really dislike the Indy's subscription model, TalkPolitics is right, I much prefer Indy reporting overall, buy it every day I work, but rarely if ever go to their website, silly fules seem to have missed it's ad revenue that makes them their profit, not sales price. Ah well.
Tim adds: Indeed, Torbay General Hospital I think. My father was teaching at Dartmouth at the time and the family lived in "Seaview Cottage" just outside Street.

Maybe it's just the sample or are blogs a means for people to commit a sort of low key rebellion?
Most of the work related blogs I've read seem to work along the lines of "I like my job, or at least the bits of it I joined up for, but the management sucks. My bosses couldn't find their bums with both hands and the powers that be impose way too much form filling before avoiding taking any decisions".
Perhaps this is the true reason so many come from the "extortion funded sector" as Rob puts it.
My! I am sounding reasonable today. Normal lunatic rantings will resume shortly.

I missed your article on work-related blogs and look forward to getting a copy from the library. Any plans for further articles on work-related blogs? A mention of my blog and research wouldn't go a miss if you do. James
