Radical company ideas

Gold Systems is moving!  It's a good thing, better space, better lease, new paint in the offices.  I've been pretty busy though, so I haven't put much effort into the blog.  Here's something that was passed on to me that I can't quite imagine working here, but who knows, it is fun to think about.
Thanks to Don for passing this on to me.  It does sound radical, but interesting.

"I thought you might be interested in this. It's an interview with employees and the owner of Semco in Brazil where the employees have wide latitude in how the job gets done. They even set their own salary (although if someone sets it too high they risk being fired by their coworkers). It's pretty radical and I'm not sure it would work in the US, but there are some interesting ideas. He's also applying his ideas to the school system and letting the kids decide how they want to be taught and who they want to do it."
