Get ready for One Laptop per Office

Inspired by the One Laptop per Child initiative, which aims to furnish low-cost laptop computers to the world’s neediest children, we’re starting a “One Laptop per Office” program. “What’s good enough for one poor child is good enough for all of our employees at a given location,” acting head of IT Winton Farber said at an event organized to announce the rollout. A banner over his head proclaimed, “Sharing is caring, and cheaper.”

A strict limit of one laptop per office will be enforced. If you work in an office that currently uses more than one laptop (i.e., most every office), expect the surplus machines to be confiscated and destroyed at the end of the week. Your compliance is required and appreciated!

The money saved from powering and maintaining the removed laptops will help defray the costs of the additional security that will be brought on to protect each office’s single laptop. As a further precautionary measure, each office’s laptop may not be removed from the premises for any reason, at any time.

    Next thing you know, you’ll be enacting a “One Toilet Paper Roll Per Bathroom.” Then, the shit will REALLY hit the fan…

    Wait, what? Some people get laptops where they work? Surely you kid. Some of us are chained to our desk with unsightly desktops. Over here, if you need to get work done early in the morning, late in the evening, or during the weekend, the only place to do it is in the office…never mind the fact that we are all high level analysts or that we work for a technology company…
