Each week we ask a question of our staff and featured writers to learn a little bit about them and gain some insight into where they are coming from.
This week’s question is:
The boss is on vacation, and completely incommunicado, for a whole week. What do you do?
Greg Tito, “Science Fiction Makes Great Games”
I would do all the work I’m usually expected to do on the first day. Then coast till Monday.
Allen Varney, “Red vs. Blue Makes Green”
I’m self-employed, so I guess that’s me, woohoo! Sorry, didn’t mean to weasel out of the question. … Based on my past job experiences, it sounds like this is exactly when everything will go instantly crazy, so I prepare myself for a week of besetting difficulties.
Jon Schnaars, “Football as Madden 07“
Catching up on all my TV on DVD at the office. Perhaps feigning some
typing every once in a while. Wouldn’t want my coworkers to get suspicious.
Jim Rossignol, “World, Interrupted”
Given that I’m a freelancer writer I am technically my own boss. … So I guess I would sit down to enjoy my holiday!
JR Sutich, Contributing Editor
Work like the diligent drone I am, for my performance is readily available for review on the internet. I also cuss more in the office. And kick the extremism in my opinions up a few notches.
Russ Pitts, Associate Editor
Open knapsack. Fill with guns (fake). Bring to office.
Joe Blancato, Associate Editor
I’m definitely not going to publish the Meet the Team answers on time!
Jessica Fielhauer, Layout Artist
Jess was unavailable for comment. (She left the office early today.)
