Jon Stanhope would have paid $250000 for such a fine effort. People should thank the artist for doing it for free!

You’d be lucky if theres was 30c worth of notes on that whole window. Given government departments manage to lose hundreds of laptops in a financial year, I think it’s the losses you don’t see that really count.

And the cost of the time…?

Happy staff are productive staff. I imagine the cost of time has been repaid a thousand times over thanks to improved morale. It certainly have a dozen or so Rioters something to do with their time 🙂

Regardless of the debate over their creation, those post-it note artworks are fantastic!

When was the last time you purchased stationery for a Government department…. ?
Post-it note are quite expensive through the “must use” providers. In fact a lot of the stationery, esp post-it notes are cheaper at Costco than places like OfficeMax, Cos etc

Hear, hear.

You put people in soulless boxes all day, you have to expect – indeed hope – that they’ll do something to add some personality and humanity to them. Good on them.

Gotta do something to personalise those drab office interiors. In relation to resourcing, section staff (including me) had to buy our own Xmas cards to send to valued interstate work contacts, for the second year running (AGD). Not even a Departmental electronic one was provided this year (AGD) – not that our contacts can receive those anyway given computer security!

Efficiency dividend obviously not biting very hard in that work area.

Quiet start to the year, that’s all..Nothing to see here. At least they weren’t pressing their backsides up against the glass.

Can we just give the various Government buildings several boxes of post-it notes instead of spending some ludicrous amount of money to install a giant butt plug in the footpath? Hell we could have different ones every week for decades for the same expense.
