Rage Against The Machine Thinks Your Company Looks A Lot Like "Maggie's Farm"...

Got a whitepaper coming out over at Kinetix that includes some video links, and here's one that was too good not to share today.

Rage Against The Machine covering the Bob Dylan classic, "Maggie's Farm".

Some of you know it from Dylan.  I know it from Rage.  Either way, the lyrics offer up a pretty good reminder of how average work can feel over time.  Sample lyics:

On jobs killing innovative thought:

"Well, I wake up in the morning
Fold my hands and pray for rain.
I got a head full of ideas
That are drivin' me insane
It's a shame 
the way she makes me 
scrub the floor..."

How about Pay for Performance?

"Well, he hands you a nickel
And he hands you a dime
And he asks you with a grin
If you're havin' a good time.."

On average performers pulling you back to the pack:

"Well I try my best
To be just like I am
But everybody wants you
To be just like them
They sing while they slave and just get bored..."

It's a shame the way you people make me scrub the floor daily here... Check out the video below (email subscribers click through for video).  Deep thoughts by Jack Handy with a great guitar riff...
