by Wes Peterson

In recent years, the concept of "working smarter, not harder" has gained acceptance. It is, howver, just the harbinger of Work Ethic v2.

Editor's Final Word

Quote from Shaw

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
