The [Tuesday] Papers

I wish I had time today - boy, do I! - to get to the Tronc bid to acquire Wrapports, owner of the Sun-Times and the Reader, but I don't. So I'll just leave you with this reminder of that infamous Tronc training video.

Ooops, it's gone!

Hopefully tomorrow I can piece something together. In the meantime, here's some other stuff.

United Is Too Tight
"'Tightness' describes a specific type of workplace culture, one that's filled with rules so absolute that employees must follow them to the letter. In contrast, when an organization has fewer standardized rules, entrusting workers to improvise on the job, it has a culture of 'looseness.' Think startups like Airbnb, where employees bring their dogs to work or take impromptu breaks in a spaceship-themed game room.

"United is at the opposite end of this continuum. And simply put, if it does not curtail its tightness, we can expect more turbulence ahead."
