LA Workers Asked To Stop Watching Olympics Online

The city of Los Angeles has asked employees to stop watching Olympics online because it is creating a black hole that sucks up bandwidth, time and productivity. Next, no more porn at work. wink

Randi Levin, chief technology officer for California's largest city, sent an email Tuesday to thousands of city employees, asking them to stop watching the games online at work, according to the Los Angeles Times. "We are experiencing a high volume of traffic due to people watching the Olympics online" and it is affecting city operations, Levin said. Apparently city employees got the message.
