The best workplace - your home office?
An interesting observation on kiwi tech blogger Rod Drury's blog.
He quotes an article which says life inside Google may not be as cool as Google's image may suggest. The real fun - and wealth - may be to be had (is that grammatically correct??) in distributed workplaces.
He quotes Jason @ Loveplum saying:
The companies have put together [fewer than] 10 person teams that make products they love and so do their users. All while everyone involved makes a better than good living with a much higher overall quality of life (both at [home] and away from work)
...and then adds about NZ:
This is our sweet spot. We know how to do small teams well. We have lifestyle. We understand real business problems. Putting that model together with moderate funding is where our software industry should shine.
Not just software, but art, books, movies... just about anything. New Zealand - what an exciting place to live and work!
