Hmmm.... so what do you do in the office when there is a power cut and therefore neither computers nor phones work...?
It is actually rather thought provoking to consider how much of many people's (working?) lives are run with the computer.
We had a power cut over much of the city centre yesterday and it brought a lot of work to a grinding halt. Empty, black screens stared back at us and it was hard to think of anything else to fill the working day with that didn't involve the use of the machines.
A colleague had suggested some days ago that we should consider a day without the use of email and the internet. Instead, we should get up from our desks and WALK over to whoever we needed to speak with OR at least pick up the phone to talk with them.
Not sure how efficient I would be then.
Could you work without the aide of computers?
