Work to Live Part III

A couple of months ago, I wrote extensively about the "Work to Live" mentality, and how the Silicon Valley culture both encouraged and epitomized it. Previous entries are here and here.

An email exchange today at work is another shining example of this phenomenon.

Hi [Boss and team],

It was a close call !! [Wife] had to go through an emergency C-Section, the baby girl was born at 11.57.

Both the Mother and the Baby are recovering.

Boss's response was as such:


Congratulations! However, don't open your laptop from the labor ward like you did this morning!

That says it all.

At least Boss wasn't thanking him for doing so.
