^^^ particularly in a calender app, it feels so much like real work, even though really it's computer aided procrastination.

I accomplished a task! I moved this task to another day!

Making a phone call to reschedule something is accomplishing a task. Did it! Check!

xp exactly

manager: "What did you accomplish today?"
snoball: "I touched base with Bob!"
manager: "Good work, keep it up."

Actually the best/worst meeting I ever had in one of my old jobs was a meeting with a manager where we discussed how behind the department was with various client projects. Consciously I knew everything was f-ed up, but subconsciously I could feel that I was getting a buzz out of this non-work/pretend work. We were sitting in a conference room! We were discussing deadlines! We were looking at a complex printout of a work schedule! We were using different coloured highlighters to prioritise project tasks! We were setting new deadlines!

i did that today! there was an incomprehensible spreadsheet and minutes being taken!

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Tuesday, 9 October 2012 22:57 (six years ago) Permalink

Any meeting where:
a) minutes are taken,
b) someone connects a video projector to their laptop and shows everyone a spreadsheet,
c) people make sure to bring a little cup of water from the watercooler
...is basically a meeting where nothing of consequence will happen and no important decisions will be made.

There are two conference room meeting scenes that spring to my mind: the first is the scene with the computer software sales guy in Fight Club, and the second is (possibly real) from The Kids Are Alright, where Townshend is discussing the future of the group, and suddenly Moon gets bored and does a handstand on the table to illustrate Pete's thought that the The Who were going to end up as a cabaret act.

we have been provided with a template for minutes, just fill in the blanks with a few sentences of syntactically sound but meaningless nonsense and BOOM you check something off the list
yes, i DO have minutes from that meeting

five years pass...

After ten years, got working smoke alarms by moving to a house with working smoke alarms. There was a functioning smoke alarm sitting on a shelf for most of those ten years just needing a battery and to be fitted.
