What makes blogs possible?

The Economist, in “Shock to the System,” Dec. 24, 2005:

EDF [Electricité de France] employees work shorter hours, enjoy longer holidays and get more special benefits than workers in any other French company. A bestselling book about how to do almost nothing at work entitled “Bonjour Paresse” (“Hello Laziness”) was written by Corinne Maier, an EDF employee. The difficulties of reforming the company are, arguably, reflected by the fact that although Ms Maier was subjected to a disciplinary hearing, she kept her job as an economic adviser on how to make EDF more efficient.

I say, keep it up and let them foot the bill.
