And Today Is…

June 21 is Recess At Work Day, described on its Web site as “your day to relive your youth, create team spirit, increase employee morale and just have some fun.” Otherwise known as Drop in Productivity Day.

I will definitely stop reading this blog is this spamming continues. Who cares about this post or the one about the Ice Cream Soda Day?

Poll your readers to figure out how many
a) think 'and today is..' is spam. I think it lowers the quality of this blog significantly.
b) don't care one way or another. I am happy sitting on the fence.
c) look forward to these posts. It is so enlightening.

The worst part is that the Freakonomics Blog no longer has anything to do with the book. The book was about using economics to analyze things in a unique way. It was about off-beat research. There are plenty of other web sites for these "what day it is" things. But it has nothing to do with Freakonomics or economics.

I disagree vehemently with this assertion. I contend that this day motivated transitory drop in productivity, but the overall increase in morale will have a positive lagged effect, raising future productivity. There could very well be a net productivity gain. Do you have any statistical evidence otherwise?
