Summer Shutdown

John Nack blogged about Adobe's summer shutdown, and I just wanted to chime in and say I agree with him 100%. The idea of a week where everyone is of is much preferable to random weeks off. It would be bad if someone have a specific reason they wanted to take some other summer week off (like a trip booked way in advance or an event they wanted to attend), but given the amount of notice we had, I don't actually know anyone who was in that situation.

John mentioned teams incorporating the shutdown into their scheduling. Isn't that a radical idea?
