While I was signing in at Cisco, the admin asked me why I always show up dressed casually-hip in jeans, cargos, T-shirts, etc; while the people I’m with dress in suits, or, the Silicon Valley Uniform of slacks with tucked-in button-down rolled-up long-sleeve shirts. She only blinked at me when I told her it was because I’m an insubordinate rebel; but, my boss backed me up by interjecting that I was good at my job, so they let me slide.

More importantly, though, what?! Don’t I look like I’m two steps away from leading a revolt?! Can’t you see me throwing away the chains of my laptop, cell-phone, and PDA to take the helm of my hand-picked insurgents and storm the castle of The Silicon Valley Machine?!

Hey, it could happen…
