Author:Peter Norvig
Description: This parody of human resources formalities imagines how Albert Einstein's supervisor at the Bern Patent Office might evaluate his on-the-job performance. "This is a patent office, Albert.... Where does it say that your priorities are rewriting the rules of the Universe, unifying space and time, unifying radiation and matter, or demonstrating the existence of atoms?.... Based on his performance as a patent clerk, I cannot recommend Albert for a promotion at this time."
