There is great sadness

20060925, 39

as the company firewall began blocking pandora as a violation of company policy today.  For me, this is a particularly wrenching loss. It is not just that someone said “You cannot play your radio!” (though the effect is the same), but also that my sole source of connection with music while working just died. Wrenching.
I suppose it’s time to shuffle over to Costco and buy an iPod, though the use of iPods in the workplace has been restricted in some places as well.

If I had time, I would research what radio stations are not being blocked by the policy. I would be willing to assure you that Windows Media player can still tune in to music from MS and other online broadcasts, demonstrating the real advantage of the monopoly of the corporate desktop .
