Marissa Mayer brought free food and shiny new iPhones to Yahoo. Now she's making a change that's a lot less fun, instituting a policy that says Yahoos can no longer work from home.

Last I heard, my arch enemy Mamma Machado had a devil child and was working from home.

Hey Yahoo, if you need to replace that fascist wench here I am!

    I’m in our office maybe four hours a week–then either visiting clients in Central Oregon or working from home. It would be a sad day if they decided to tether us to the home ship.

      I’m actually surprised more companies don’t do work from home with all the meeting software available. It would eliminate their rents and a lot of hardware (i.e. computer) needs. Also would eliminate all the inter-office politics that ruin offices.

        I work from home about 75% of the time. Save me a ton in gas money and parking fees. plus i dont spend over an hour of my day in traffic. I’m a big fan. most companoes probably dont trust their emplyees to stay on task, but as long as you get your work done on time, should be easy to police.

          Yeah it seems win-win. A good way to let employees keep more of their wages, a good way for corporations to pay less rent, hardware costs, etc.

    not everyone is made for working at home. But its great when it works.

    Angie does a fine job with beaverblitz and is a solid rep for beaver football. Not saying that makes it worth 10 bucks a month or whatever rivals is now but she does do a good job for what it is rivals asks her to do.

      She does a fine job banning dissenting voices, creating an environment where people have to walk on egg shells, and pumping false rumors to sell memberships. She’s the typical corporate yes woman.

    I didn’t even realize her site was affiliated with Yahoo. The one week free trial back in the day was enough to convince me it wasn’t worth a dime. I like my internet wild, free and absurd!

    Inter-office teamwork is a bunch of namby-pamby bullshit anyway, most of our co-workers would stab us in the back and climb over our dead bodies if it meant more recognition or more money. This cliched plan will most likely just speed along the demise of Yahoo.

      Marissa Mayer is ex Google, so she’s trying to bring the same ideology to Yahoo. Personally I find all of it nerdy and cheese ball, Google included–that corporate culture looks insufferable (except for the food and scooters).

      btw, Yahoo bought out rivals.com a few years ago.

        I doubt this ordinance applies to all Yahoo! subsidiaries.

    I go to the office once a month and only to catch up on gossip. Anytime I spend in the office is time away from what I should be doing (selling). Managers like to manage and most like to control.

    OT – Poyer recorded a 4.46 time, not bad. Better than I expected.

    Millner in the 4.3 range.

      Wow, way better than I thought.

      Possibly bumps him back into the 2nd round with that time. I had been hearing he was likely slipping into the 3rd round.

    RPI will take a hit over the next couple weeks. But it looks good right now.

    Sometimes bloggers would do better if they kind of almost did just a smidge of homework.

    Everyone knows this is a mock-up done by a guy over on PO. Everyone but this guy?

    Fwiw, I’ve been told the primary (yes, there will be two secondaries) helmet will be like the GK helmet, except the stripeys will run down the facemask as well as over the top. But there will be no logo on it. The secondaries are an orange and a white helmet. I’ve not heard much about the orange, but I think it’s metallic with no logo. And the white will have a logo.

    But this is all third-hand info. So we’ll see what’s true next week.

    I thought I saw on PO someone write that the letter mark will be OSU with the S being dominant. I ignored that idea because it would just be dumb for us to not only take oSu’s linked OS idea from their baseball team pre-2000. It would also be dumb to add on to the confusion by making our letter mark oSu as well.
