It's that time of year again! Check out this nifty SXSW panel submission (by yours truly, Erin McHam & Beth Davidz) on how to survive corporate restructurings, right-sizings and resource rebalancings.*

"Allowing employees to work from anywhere makes it easier to focus on the work itself, without the distractions of office politics. Around 70% of Americans work in open-plan offices, and research shows that the open spaces actually have a negative impact on productivity and overall happiness."
Tech behemoths and startups alike spend a fortune on creating plush offices with lots of perks. But arguably the biggest perk is allowing employees to work wherever they want, whenever they want. This is something Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg understood a decade ago when he launched the online publishing platform WordPress. Today his global workforce of 260...

"Tabless Thursday" seems like a decent enough idea. ("Taco Tuesday" was already taken.)
Trying to do too many internet things at once makes it hard to get anything done at all.

What History Will Say About Obamacare and the Government Shutdown
www.thedailybeast.com

One side tried to bring health care to all. The other shut down the government. Michael Tomasky knows which will be judged more kindly.

United Center is blocks away from the L, but otherwise next to nothing. Give yourself plenty of time to get there. A great place to see a basketball game - there are plenty of (fairly) clean stalls in the restrooms, and each concession stand offers a variety of stadium foods - from a pulled pork sandwich, to cheesy fries to your standard nachos and hot dogs.

The Bongo Room never disappoints. The white chocolate, caramel and crushed pretzel pancakes are amazing. Even if dessert for breakfast isn't your thing, you'll leave stuffed and satisfied no matter what you order. Right near Millenium Park, it's fairly convenient. But make sure to give yourself plenty of time - the tiny quarters make for long waits (it's totally worth it.)

Centrally located and friendly staff, this is a great place to stay in the center of it all. Be sure to request a corner room, otherwise you may get stuck with a view of the pool (seeing a half-naked man wave to you when you open the drapes is less than ideal.) There's a Starbucks in the main entryway, and the restaurant downstairs also offers room service. Overall, highly recommend.

Strange Cargo, located just down the street from Wrigley Field, always offers the best of the strange and weird. Punky Brewster pinball? Growing Pains baseball cards? They've got 'em. Be sure to check out the store near the holidays - the inventory switches over to all St. Patrick's Day to help you celebrate. It's always on my short list of stops when I'm in town.
