Internet access at work may help, not hurt productivity

After a few years of people talking about too much porn, surfing, and bad internet jokes in the workplace, an article in Business 2.0 draws attention to the possibility that monitoring and cracking down on personal internet access at work could be counterproductive.

The piece also theorizes that an increase in absenteeism may be caused by employers not allowing employees to do personal business in "down time" at work.
