You may remember a post we put up on Sunday about Google’s Pac-Man playable logo. Google’s Pac-Man logo led to almost five million wasted hours and cost the economy about $120 million, an analyst estimated. Google apparently had about 505 million users on Friday when the Pac-Man doodle went live. The game took up 4,819,352 hours of employee time and cost the economy a whopping $120,483,800, said Tony Wright, founder of Rescue Time, which is a tool that helps businesses to measure how time and attention was being spent. For that same cost, you could hire all 19,385 Google employees. That includes Larry Page and Sergey Brin, right down to the janitors. You could hire them for six weeks – imagine what you could build with that army of manpower,” The Telegraph quoted from Wright’s blog post. Even though these numbers are impressive, I don’t like to think of this as lost manpower and money. We aren’t meant to work 24 hours a day. Fuck the economy. I guarantee if all of you were told you have X amount of work to do everyday and you can go home when your job is done…many of you would work through lunch, skip surfing the net, and finish your task well in probably half the time it usually takes. If corporations would treat their employees like human beings there wouldn’t be 505 Million people playing a 30 year old video game.
