Web Workers: Some Bathrobes, Some Not

macbook proIn this charming post by Anne Zelenka, she gives thanks for being able to work in her bathrobe. Web workers don’t need to worry about dressing up or even leaving the home. But what about us web workers who have to bother with showering, putting on pants and trudging into the cube farms? It’s ironic that most in the web field have do their work in a fixed physical location, putting in “face time” with coworkers and trying (futilely) to appear interested during lengthy meetings. It’s so, well, 20th century, that most who build and maintain web sites have to report to an office every day. I’ll give thanks when the work practices of today catch up to the reality of web work. Until then, you’ll find me in my cube.

  1. Actually, I gave thanks for working in my slippers… if you get a pair like mine, you could probably wear them in your cubicle without anyone’s being the wiser 😉

    It is a bit ridiculous, the emphasis on showing up at an office and putting in your face time. I hope you at least have a bit cube, and maybe a sliding door for some privacy.
