At an event I was hostessing last night at Lulu's Restaurant on 4th and Folsom St. I learned about the female CEO of Hewlett-Packard being fired as one of many let go for spying on their employees. Apparently HP is notorious for this brand of political strategizing.
I can't speak for anyone but myself but if my employer spied on me at work I wouldn't be very productive. I'd be paranoid and neurotic that my every move was being watched.
