If I had to work with anyone who was following that advice, I'd suggest firing them. Particularly the second article.

    Well, I've been fired for using sarcasm .. but it was the manager who was following the advice in the articles. (specifically the 3rd article, which is about how to mismanage).

    Oh...and from my grandfather's notes, he originally wanted to name the series 'Surival Manual for Incompetent Executives'

    It's also not quite obvious from the selections of the first article, that the whole thing is a joke ... the first article starts off by explaining ...

    We will start by adopting one of the cardinal principles of the business world: The attention to be given to any decision is inversely proportional to its importance. The decision to enter the industrial world, rather than teaching, academic research or government service must be considered a major one, so plunge right in without analyzing your prospects for success or happiness. If you find later on that this is a critical mistake, you can adopt another common practice; criticize the system, cry foul, and insist that you were mislead.

    The next decision to be carefully avoided is that of seeking the proper company. As with people, each company has a special personality, with its own atmosphere, mores, and criteria for success and failure. The principle to be noted here is that alternatives in any decision situation are problems, not opportunities; careful analysis of multiple-alternative decisions leads only to confusion.

[Corion]: Mhhmmm - https://sod.pixlab .io/ looks really interesting for embedding with Perl (XS), but they don't have any kind of free model available and the cheapest pretrained model costs EUR 40 :-(
[Corion]: Maybe I should mail them to find out if they can provide me a "hotdog / no hotdog" model for developping the XS bindings. It would be nice to have a self-contained XS library for applying models to data. Or maybe I should look at TensorFlow, which can...
[Corion]: ... at least be trained by me, instead of relying on a vendor
