Re: Productivity Metrics
I am also certain that a lot of the first telegraph connections were pretty
bad. At first, a lot of stupid stuff was transmitted across the wires. But
over time as the technology matured it became an invaluable asset to many
industries and individuals.
Well, now, it certainly isn't measurable in profits either, since the number of dot.coms
making real profits probably number fewer than 20.
Furthermore, before the new economy can mature, the existing enormous pile of
crap on the Web must be cleaned out--a task equivalent in magnitude
to cleaning out the stables of hell.
Furthermore, it could be argued that productivity is an irrelevant metric. Who
cares if you are doing something productively? If the customer gets what he/she
wants and profits are being made - then productivity is irrelevant.
I say again: What profits?
