Anna the Intern

hwms.coverart Every office needs and intern. Hence Anna was the first character to join the podcast. She’s energetic, she is, optimistic and completely convinced that her emotional and organizational intelligence will lead her to a stellar career in the technology industry. As played by Sarah Corbyn Woolf, she has shown herself to be a bit of a title hound (and who among us is completely free from that fault, and has provided us with an interesting way to probe the challenges that 20 somethings face as they enter the business world.

Moving to Seattle (Series I)

hwms.coverart We didn’t move to Seattle.  We thought it would be cute to set s series there.  Office in a houseboat.  A houseboat with a basement.  Slugs.  Techies everywhere. This fall, the podcast moves to Seattle. Such moves keep us flexible, agile, ready to face any task. Well, perhaps any task. There is this problem with slugs. However, we’re in Seattle to consider the attributes of an innovative organization. In the process, we’re looking at four attributes: Vision, Refinement, Socialization, and Decision-making. But to do that, we have to settle into our office. A local property manager is some help (though not much) and our hardworking intern puts down her box of material to deliver the lyrical speech “Rohit that Slug had a mother.” [16405]Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

What Happens When the Bosses Are Gone? (Series I)

hwms.coverart The podcast producers still believe that they are making a serious contribution to the real world but the reality of our work is starting to appear.  Drama trumps the real world.  A good story is better than a bad truth.  And so the cast takes over the podcast. We know the answer to the question that this episode poses.   You know the answer to it. You wouldn’t be looking at this page if you didn’t. The only questions are “How will the staff get themselves out of this mess?” and “How embarrassing will it be for them?” [16335]Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Anna appeals to Elon Musk

errant.coverart Here’s the trouble with real people.  They don’t don’t write, they don’t call, they just aren’t reliable.  Anna the Intern made an appeal  to Elon Musk early in our run. Did she get a reply?  You tell me. Real people! Anna wants to be a player. She hopes to be a technology media mogul. For her next step, she hopes to host the next binge episode, though she has already hosted two, one on December 22 and the next on December 29. To achieve that goal, she has made an appeal to Elon Musk, though this appeal is also an apology for a slight she fears that she may have made. [16115]Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
