Technology Link: The Happiness Machine

If you are a Slate regular reader, you saw this a few days. We just came across it. It's a story about changes in our lives - for the better - the internet is making possible, and, in particular, how Google constantly searches to improve the lives of its already pampered employees. Click to: Slate: The Happiness Machine. How Google became such a great place to work. By Farhad Manjoo

Evidence of similar efforts to improve the lives of workers right here in the CM seven county area is evident, as more and more workplaces let workers stay at home when road conditions are life threatening. A parallel benefit is seen in the schools. It won't be long until snow days only mean a day of classes on internet tablets at home, with no loss of revenues for the advanced school systems. Won't that be great? - EW
