1st time by the White House in a while. I’m disappointed that people are now kept across the street. It’s a troubling symbol of how our government is now seperate from the people.

HBR says hierarchy is overrated, and that flat organizations perform better. What mental adaption would the front-line employee or manager need to make if they moved in to such an organization?

I like this attention to the question of kludge policies. This ware policies that increase complexity, sometimes adding greater complexity than the problem they a ostensibly instituted to solve. One of the reasons this happens is that new policies append rather than supersede old policies.

Independent verification of the identity of the other party and facts is one of the best ways to prevent fraud through social engineering. The diligence.

I was recently the target of a scam on Craigslist when I tried to sell an old MiFi hotspot (still for sale, FYI). The person on the other end of the transaction went so far as to fake an e-mail from PayPal to say that funds had been transferred to my account. I didn't click on any link in the e-mail the other party had sent me. Rather I went directly to paypal.com to check that status of my account. When the funds were not in my account my suspicions were confirmed.
