The Take Back Your Time Initiative is promoting awareness of the insane amount of time Americans and Canadians spend working. They point out that (from their site):
Computer geeks are as aware of this as anyone. And we certainly understand stress, too.
I've been preaching this (and practising it) for a long time now. We work too much, and it doesn't do anyone any good. When people are tired and stressed, they make more mistakes, get less done, and make themselves even more tired, thus deepening the problem.
Four day work weeks and shorter work days would probably result in increased productivity, reduced sick-time, and lower insurance costs. And a few less messed up computer systems.
Take back your life.
