:: Douglas Rushkoff - Weblog ::

in light of the fact that tonight I'm working an extra shift because three people just went poof at my job, doug's words are particularly apropos.. re:
Investing one's time an energy into a single corporation isn't necessarily less creative - but it is, ironically, less secure. Corporations just let people go. They give severance and all, but then it's over - and all you can say is what you did for that company. You don't have things out there with your own name on them. And because all of your income came from that single source, once it's gone - it's gone. You are back on the street.
(through the darkness of future past this all will make more sense)
