Love in the workplace

And no I am not talking about bonking your secretary!

In the afore-mentioned Future interview with Steve Jobs he mentions love a lot. Loving the iPhone, loving working for Apple.

I wrote about love and its place in the workplace some time ago when I still worked at the BBC. It felt OK to talk about it then even though I knew some people would find it a bit odd. Having now gone freelance and met people from all sorts of organisations I am aware that for lot of people talking in terms of love at work would not only get them laughed at but in some places would have serious repercussions.

Isn't that sad.
