Lots of good stuff in defence of small talk from David Weinberger, Suw Charman and Stowe Boyd at Get Real. In case people still need reminding in 2004: Employees are people, not workbots with motherboards and hard drives where their brains and hearts should be. The company that devalues informal social networks not only devalues its employees, but limits its own success.

Speaking of which, Perry and I had a nice meal at ASK last night when I returned from seeing our friends and clients at the ASI. Several non-work-related subjects were discussed, and we also came away with plans of action for several projects, but it would have been worthwhile even if all we’d done was talk about our favourite colours and what trees we’d be if we were trees.
