Teamwork Collaboration: A failure when a workplace is full of morons

I am back from long – week hiatus here in the blogesphere. Beside I am still on the process of adjusting to my new gig. The best part is at least I am FAR away from the people in a workplace with full of whiners, a crying boy (where is my mommy!), a pretentious quack wanna be Dr. Phil  who’s job is preserved for the reasons of insanity; an uneducated coordinator with her up to no good  henchmen.  Are you kidding me? I am free from you guys! Thanks a lot!

No, I could not be in that place. One frigging year is too much. I should have gone long time ago. They don’t deserve me and I don’t deserved them. YOU ARE ALL UNPROFESSIONALS! Yes, you hear me.

I should not even publish this “Teamwork;+collaboration, +sharing= avalanche of what? which become the MOST READ for weeks and weeks. Guys, the avalanche I was hoping for in that workplace did not happen because the place is just full of morons, including me of course. hehehe.

My friends sorry to inform you that “Teamwork  and collaboration” is a failure. The problem is that there are CRABS among us and if you have no protection against idiotic people (I know who are idiots because I am an idiot) then the idea of collaboration is doomed to fail. Everyone is trying to save their own assess and most of all pretentious. I know because I became them. I played with their game. I was able to penetrate their minds and their souls.

I am proud to be in that place though but the people were just too much ( a supervisor who is as moron, an ego maniac “guy” who taught he is the greatest because he published something).

The most amazing part is that this place wanted to inflect fear in my heart and in my being which I resisted. Are they GONE MAD? ME, AFRAID? A FILIPINO-AMERICAN afraid of bitchy MORONIC stupid people? NO frigging WAY!

At the end I still got what I wanted – the proof… how mean people are. Because of their moronic, power hungry attitudes they gave me what I wanted. Yes,  I RESIGNED and that day I ended up being escorted out in that building and told by the ARROGANT  executive officer that  if I go back I would be accused of trespassing.

HELLO, this story did not happen in the PHILIPPINES or in the third world country.  It happened here in the UNITED STATED OF AMERICA!

It is understandable though because THAT IS WHAT  YOU GET IF YOU HAVE NO UNION!

Is there any advise out there how to get back to these people or this type of organization? Thank you for your advise if you have any.

Trouble over Obama’s picture

You need permission to use the image. Similar or look alike?

You need permission to use the image. Similar or look alike?

I guess, it is just natural that if someone is making money and gets all the credits out of something owned by Associated Press (AP) –  will not enjoy the glory and fame  forever.

The owner wants justice! The owner wants recognition and most of all compensation!

So as the news continues,

NEW YORK – On buttons, posters and Web sites, the image was everywhere during last year’s presidential campaign: A pensive Barack Obama looking upward, as if to the future, splashed in a Warholesque red, white and blue and underlined with the caption HOPE.

Obama's poster everywhere

Designed by Shepard Fairey, a Los-Angeles based street artist, the image has led to sales of hundreds of thousands of posters and stickers, has become so much in demand that copies signed by Fairey have been purchased for thousands of dollars on eBay.

The image, Fairey has acknowledged, is based on an Associated Press photograph, taken in April 2006 by Manny Garcia on assignment for the AP at the National Press Club in Washington.

The AP says it owns the copyright, and wants credit and compensation. Fairey disagrees. Read the rest of the entry.

The Big Switch: Rewiring The World From Edison to Google – book blog

The book entitled, “The Big Switch: Rewiring The World From Edison to Google”  is now in its seventh printing. It is claimed to be in the New YorkJoomla! Journal Bestseller’s list.

The book is considered to be my typical text book that tackles the subject of information technology. A book that tells a story on how far computing have developed from 5 1/2 – inch floppy diskette to SD. And in today’s cloud computing, you don’t even need to bring any physical storage like an SD or 31/2 Floppy Diskette or Flash Drive because you can retrieve, share and collaborate anywhere and everywhere! Cloud computing that is!

Amazingly, without bloody armed revolution, the old paradigm is crumbling. It is dying of natural death –  the era of personal computing as we know it  is now in the brink of antiquity. The reign of the stalwarts have come to an end. As the writer puts it,

The shift is already remaking the computer industry, bringing new competitors like Google and Salesforce.com to the fore and threatening stalwarts like Microsoft and Dell. But the effects will reach much further. Cheap, utility-supplied computing will ultimately change society as profoundly as cheap electricity did. We can already see the early effects — in the shift of control over media from institutions to individuals, in debates over the value of privacy, in the export of the jobs of knowledge workers, even in the growing concentration of wealth.

Personal computing on the way out.

Cloud computing is in! And it is getting stronger and stronger every minute because in the cloud, time and space do not exist so better manage your time and know what you want before clicking the browser. You will get lost with the links and trackbacks and millions of search results. The understanding of cloud computing is easier to understand now compared 20 years ago. All we have to do now is to make sense or self awareness of the basic concept – The File Management.
