PMStyle has a post on how wireless kills some bad meetings, with an entertaining list of meetings. He forgot one: the review. This can be the meeting where you review somebody's code, somebody's specification, or the famous "post-mortem" review meeting where blame gets assigned for any failings the last project had. Now wireless doesn't get you out of these reviews, but it's not so bad. After all, you can have a lot of fun at most review meetings -- you're usually there to criticize the specification or code, which can be entertaining. And wireless can help you dig up more information to damn the stuff being reviewed. "Did you know that all the functionality you have been coding for the past three weeks is provided by a free library I just downloaded? Oh, I guess you didn't, too bad you wasted all that time." Does it ever make you think of Mao's communist party criticism meetings?
