A weekly is a report sent to your co-workers and superiors to tell them what you have accomplished that week. It is a status report sent out once a week.

Commonly employed by large corporations, the weekly is a malicious tool designed to weaken the will and remove freedom. Actually, a "weekly" is merely an update or list of accomplishments for the week that an employee would send to his or her manager. Weeklies frequently are also sent to peers and other people who might want to know what you are doing. This is a common procedure when a company has a multitude of employees and traditional methods sometimes break down. When the going gets really rough a manager may result to dailys or daily updates in order to more accurately keep tabs on progress. Frequently an employee will have to make up information on their weekly to make it look like they did something besides node on E2 all day, and then explain to their superior why there is no evidence of this work.

A weekly may look something like this:

Seamore Butts - Weekly 02/30/2000

  • Finished overdue accounting project
  • Noded a lot on E2!
  • Wasted away time on Internet
  • Met with people who knew nothing and accomplished nothing.
  • Slow internet connection made browsing hard.
  • Email went down for a little while.
  • I hate my job
  • Tuesday: Synergy pre-emptive Taskforce
  • Friday: Collaborative effectiveness group
  • Actually do some work.
  • Finish browsing internet (I have almost seen it all).

Although actual requirements will vary drastically, this is just a rough outline to give you an idea.
