Off the Chip episode 219

"The company wanted to save money so they hired a new I.T. consulting firm."

I heard the other day of a consultant who's primary task was to keep himself working with a client. He didn't want to do anything that would put him out of work so he kept doing scrappy little pieces of work to look like he was bein successful, yet he was ensuring he wasn't reaching the ultimate goal.

I have also seen a few luddite I.T. guys before. Can't say I blame them. A new technology comes along and it's just new enough to mess up the whole system when implemented. There is nothing like starting from scratch just when you have all the computers talking nice to each other!
