Re: Some Choice
Not a caption: I had a different view of this altogether. With all the news about sitting will kill you, I thought that could work as a way of making people aware of how long they are sitting and what it could cost them in terms of health.

What's Worse?
I'm not sure what's worse... being an IT worker paid in coins, or that my billable time stops every time I get off the chair.

Meters at Work
I had Woz hack the meter. The boss thinks he's adding more time, he's actually giving me a raise and contributing to Greenpeace.

We have to pay for these some how
I don't like having to feed these meters out of my pocket any more than you. I know no one got a raise this year except for the VP who suggested these meters. We have to pay for his brilliant idea some how.
