Jason Fried: Why work doesn’t happen at work

Excellent TED video on why work doesn’t happen at work.


“Jason Fried has a radical theory of working: that the office isn’t a good place to do it. At TEDxMidwest, he lays out the main problems (call them the M&Ms) and offers three suggestions to make work work.”

“Jason Fried thinks deeply about collaboration, productivity and the nature of work. He’s the co-founder of 37signals, makers of Basecamp and other web-based collaboration tools, and co-author of “Rework.””

One thought on “Jason Fried: Why work doesn’t happen at work”

  1. He gets some good laughs, but I can’t say I really agree with him….maybe I’m just weird.


    His take on meetings might work when you’re building a web startup, but I can’t imagine we’d get a space shuttle in the air without meetings and a common place for people to gather for at-will face to face discussions.  I regularly attend meetings called by peers….mangement invites are not as common.
