Hello Laziness

A good case of follow your own advice:

Those who dedicate their professional lives to idleness should do so with discretion if they hope to keep their jobs. This is one useful message in Hello Laziness – The Art and the Importance of Doing the Least Possible at the Workplace, an anarchic anti-business bible published in France. It is advice the author, Corinne Maier, a senior economist at Electricite de France, failed to follow. She faces a disciplinary hearing next month, accused of attempting to “rot the system from within”.

Maier’s supporters are saying that EDF is threatening her right to free speech.
