What do Dr. Seuss and legal hold obligations regarding backup tapes have in common? Quite a lot, it turns out.
Dr. Seuss’s Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? describes a number of people we should be thankful we’re not, one of whom is a bee-watcher watcher. Because a bee that is watched will work harder, a town decided to have a bee watcher watch a lazy bee. But the bee did not end up working much harder, so the townsfolk figured that the bee-watcher wasn’t watching as well as he could. So, they assigned someone else to watch the bee-watcher. And then a watcher to watch the bee-watcher watcher. And so on, until all the townsfolk were watching the watchers.
