“it’s getting boring, and so now we play around”

work (un)culture!!

Lets pick some lines from few techies’ jabberwocky conversation.
“Man!! Im simply too busy for nethin right now”
“Im slogging my arse off”
“Ive got no time to do that, all i can think of is that harsh deadline”

Mr. Techie is working hard towards meeting a unrealistic deadline; sweat and toil, and finally with a heroic effort the target is achieved with all might and valor. Victory!! one might say. Accolades flow in from all directions and further motivate Mr. Techie to stretch. Now, people around Mr. Techie realize the magnitude of effort he put into this war against time, not to mention his unique ability to stretch, and motivate him to keep up the good work done. He is now considered an integral member in the team and soon becomes a stimulant inspiration for the new techie to follow suit.

The vicious glorious cycle is thriving.
All this, at the expense of what?

Merriam Webster defines “culture” as “enlightenment and excellence of taste acquired by intellectual and aesthetic training. acquaintance with and taste in fine arts, humanities, and broad aspects of science as distinguished from vocational and technical skills”

Now its up to *you* to define “unculture”.
