Sun Discovers Dumb Terminals

enigmatic anomaly Snowcrash (605 comments)

Sun's officeless office place has a shocking reminder or the "Feds" from Neal Stephenson's Snowcrash. Where employees scramble each morning to get in early to get desk's at the 'front of the room' because it shows their commitment to work. Each employee's terminal, is monitored, even the amount of time spent reading a memo and the position of there eyes while reading is monitored all to generate information on the employee for there numerous personnel reviews, (which include polygraphs and the occasional truth drugs.)

Not to say that Sun is going to these paranoid extremes, but the initial parallel was shocking.
