"Every composer knows the anguish and despair occasioned by forgetting ideas which one had no time to write down."

My favorite headline from this week's Computerworld: "BMWs Are Out, Bowling Is In." It's a look at the perks that companies are using today to hang onto valued employees. Worth noting is the concept that just because times are tough, employers shouldn't think that just having a job is enough compensation. Best line: "If companies continue to operate purely in a cost-cutting mode, as soon as the economic situation improves, the best performers will leave."
