How to be a good manager? Be an ass.

So i read Talent Management magazine for work. It's about trends in Human Resources. Bathroom reading. Most articles are incredibly bland. But this one is unusual for two reasons. One, it's advice to individual managers (as opposed to explaining the latest type of performance reviews that everyone is using).

And two, well:

Good managers are rude and mean.

So basically, be a dick. Talk too much, interrupt people, act angry. Really surprising for this magazine, and it just amazes me that they'd be so open about the fact that to be a manager you have to be mean. I also think it's bad advice.

Anyway, i was reminded of this when a certain someone wouldn't let a different someone get a word in edgewise about the new Captain America film (i am not one of the someones in this story; i have not yet seen Captain America).

Oh, No He Didn't

In this article about "self-organising networks", I came across this wonderful line:

[Tansley] publicly accused Smuts of what he called "the abuse of vegetational concepts" - which at the time was considered very rude.
