“Rules of Social Networking” -> always on the Network.

A good post over on Computerworld:


The opening paragraph stood out: “Remember back in the day when we worked from 9-5, nights and weekends were reserved for friends and family, and never the twain shall meet?”

Yup, that's gone. It must be a pain if you don't like your job or business.

On the other hand, I really like what I do that makes me money, so if the urge to do something happens at 9:30 pm, that's fine.

On the other hand, I really like other things I do that don't make me money, and if the urge to do something online happens at 2:30 pm, that's fine too.

Or is it? in both cases? It means that your value to your employer or customer is based around what you deliver; deliver quality results on time and no one will ask what time of the day it got done. Let the bleeding together of work and non-work impede your ability to deliver, you will be in trouble.

So, there will always be a group of people who can work this way, and those who should not, with everyone else somewhere in between.

Of course, this is how all the young folks live their lives already, so a time will likely come when no one thinks there is any problem.
