Over at Network Performance Daily there is an interesting post up about what kinds of games people play depending on how much mental stimulation they are getting at work/”the real world”.
So, anyway, right now, I work for NetQoS as the editor of this blog as well as “the video guy” in the company from time to time, and I moonlight as a field producer for an independent film company in town – and let’s not forget that I’m also 30,000 words into my non-fiction book on electoral reform in New Zealand… Pac-Man just about hits the spot.
It is a pretty good read, and the points that come up are all to familiar to me as well. After all this project itself was born from the lack of mental stimulation at the job. I would never profess to be a writer at all, but here I am writing, and you can tell pretty well how things are at work by how many posts I end up putting up. It’s not always true as sometimes the days I don’t post anything are either from a lack of finding anything that catches my eye enough to want to write about, or I’ve found so many interesting things, that I get a lot of mental stimulation just reading everything.
