cpsr365

humbly attempting a 365 focused on my own bureaucratic journey.

who knows, we may both find the experience humanizing.

please note that i publish on a 7 day delay in order to make this blog manageable (i.e. what you read today, actually happened to me 7 days ago)
1: just five more minutes
some people say the work day starts at nine and ends five, in reality it starts far sooner and ends far later.
i woke up 30 minutes earlier than this shot seems to indicate, but i can’t even speak coherently before a shower, let alone work a camera.
besides, isn’t procrastination the hallmark of mondays in the bureaucracy?

2: it’s a team sport
i play pickup hockey tuesday afternoons after work, when i do, time dissapears.

and it is something i think we should all strive for.

3: one leg at a time 
contrary to popular belief, be you deputy or be you mail clerk, all bureaucrats put their pants on one leg at a time.
somewhere between putting on pants and the execution of our actual work the organization creates artificial distance, enrages us, or worse, strips us of our humanity.
or at least that’s how it feels some wednesdays.

5: karma amidst the chaos
i asked a question on twitter last week, i was looking for a specific computer component.  it was no longer in production, but someone had one they weren’t using ryan, a man whom i’ve never met, mailed me one from moosejaw that he wasn’t using i agreed to send him back a tim’s card to cover the postage. it’s called collaborative consumption; and its fascinating. millions of people trust each other everyday on the web, but why is something found so easily on the web so hard to find within the organization.
