Employers Should Either Thank Or Boycott The Wall Street Journal

Since most of this law firm's employees - with the notable exception of its lawyers - don't read the Wall Street Journal, I'm not too upset.  But since some of them do, I am.

Let me explain.

The WSJ ran an article about how to workaround an employer's IT department.  Like most employers, we ban just about everything on this list of ten workarounds.  That's why it's so frustrating to see a business-related newspaper provide our employees with these workarounds.  I can only hope the WSJ employee computers are flooded with crashes, Trojan horses, spyware and malware as a consequence of this "tell-all" style article.

On the other hand, I'm thankful.

As soon as I finished reading the article, I dashed off an email to our IT department with instructions to block and solve all the problems identified in the article.  That way, our computers will remain safe, commerce will continue and the bad guys get foiled once again.

Who comes up with this stuff anyway?
