@paulwallbank @R_Chirgwin I’m tempted to agree. Even up here, things are significantly more expensive that the city.

Even mug employee me knew that the contract conditions were WAY out of line. Yet this startup was spawned from a big company with lawyers.

via TweetDeck

In Dotcom Bubble 1, I was asked in AU to sign a contract off a US site.
“I’m not signing that.”
A surprised “Why?”
“Because it’s illegal.”

via TweetDeck

I’m often amused at some of the legal boilerplate that comes out of the US, especially in employment contracts.

I take your point, @paulwallbank. Still, wide-eyed acceptance of random words from a “tech industry leader” is an intellectual cargo cult.
