One of them is about 'The Future of Work'. You'll see what it is about when I get it finished. In the meantime, just saw this entry into Seth Godin's blog.

Bottom line – on the face of it is about the rat race – as we called back in the 50s and 60s (funny how we knew it then  and still did nothing about it) … but more deeply it is about ‘the man’ – more of that in that post I talked about – but it centers on my ongoing reflection on the changing nature of work.

What struck me, were these words:

industrial systems (and the marketing regime) adore the mindset of ‘a little bit more, please’, because it furthers their power. A slightly higher paycheck, a slightly more famous college, an incrementally better car — it’s easy to be seduced by this safe, stepwise progress, and if marketers and bosses can make you feel dissatisfied at every step along the way, even better for them.
