Reconsidering Convention
Why's the business world so formal, anyway? Convention, that's why.

Does formality make a business more effective? Sometimes, sure, maybe, but how about making more room for passion and enthusiasm? There's a lot more power there than in "controlling" practical jokes, long coffee breaks, and inter-office relationships (does formality really curb these?).
