Scott, now you need to follow up this strip with one that shows Dilbert asking to become part of the control group. The first thing the point hair boss throws at Dilbert is a long complex form were Dilbert needs document proof of value to the company. Another form were he needs to document work to be preformed at home. A third form were all possible distractions must be documented, do you have a Dog, how close is the nearest coffee shop, and etc.. And finally a release form that grants the company permission to monitor his TV and Internet usage at home and Dilberts movement outside of the office.
The government science research and teaching organization where I was working till 15 years ago also had a similar experiment going. With a slight difference, that the sole purpose WAS to frustrate the employees. The results did not matter.
