HP slaps dress code on R&D geeks: Bin that T-shirt, put on this tie

I was over in San Francisco (near the Visa office) last week.

On Friday at a building across the road - was a fenced-off back yard-type area where employees were allowed to roam like prison inmates during exercise hour.

It was Friday and I spotted a Casual Friday notice saying "It's all about Mexico today", some dev were standing around wearing sombreros while eating burritos. All of them looked throughly depressed.

They looked like they'd been ordered to a relative's birthday and had been told by their Mum to wear a tie. I suspect that working there wouldn't exactly be a bundle of laughs.

Wonder when the top tables will realise that it's better to hide the folks who don't really do 'smart' as opposed to making them conform?

Paris because I miss her antics now that she's an international DJ.
