The first rule of the awesome stuff paul's doing at work is to not talk about what paul's doing at work.

It's frustrating because it's so goddamned awesome.

What about if Pikachu is given an honorary Ph.D in Psychology, you invoke doctor-patient priviledge in talking about the "on the job stresses" of what you are doing to your new found "Dr. Pikachu", then Dr. Pikachu can invoke same with Dr. Livejournal. It's a stretch, but it could work. ;)

technically, which invoking doctor-doctor priviledge, isn't personal information not to be shared? As in "I have this patient with such and such", not "I have Mr. Timmins with such and such..."?

that's a good question about the technicality. i'm not sure.. *shrug*

but, I suppose Dr. Pikachu could say "today, a patient visited this Ameritech facility and was appalled at the amount of duct tape used to hold certain core cables together."....

Something tells me you're walking into HIPAA issues, thereby putting Dr. Pikachu and Dr. LJ in trouble.

My work is the same way if you replace awesome stuff with horrific shit.

I understand. I worked in an acute care psych facility, and we'd often get high profile "crazies" (to use my own brand of professional terminology) just like that right after they'd committed their heinous act. They all try to go with the insanity plea so we were the lucky ones that got to evaluate them.

And, by high profile crazies you mean the law enforcement officers involved in the story I linked to, right?

Technical Foul but the ref is waving off the penalty flag.

Yeah, that's an awful situation! I had this patient once who was a deputy sheriff for one of the counties in Ga. He murdered his wife, and tried to pin it on his 13 year old son. As he was investigated further, it was found that he was also receiving bribes from people running meth labs out of their home so he'd just look the other way. He was a real class act.

I'd be really interested to hear what the Eureka police officer's "justification" was for his actions.

Personally, I sense a really great parody of Dinosaur Comics coming out of this.

Maintain your secrecy, but it's my opinion that most of the time, especially in business, secrecy works against the organization, not for it.

I work in management. I am talking about deals that are nothing more than fog at this point. Generally business secrets don't work as well as businesses hope, but discussing pending deals is a really bad idea at this point because it could scuttle our chance to make the deal instead.

At my level, some amount of secrecy is required.
