To my surprise, the post with the most hits is on a topic, that is very subjective, thus near and dear to my heart: how companies frustrate the heck out of you, if you are trying to be productive.
I wrote that blog post out of deep frustration and it's nice to see that others feel the same way about this topic. On the other hand - that's the downside - it probably means, that people out there experience similar frustrations. I think more people should write about this and thus show companies, that we could be so much more productive, if they'd just give us the chance.
