Probably not that long ago I would have completely skipped over this article.  However I have 2 friends who left their previous jobs directly related to “boredom” or more specifically lack of work.  Interestingly enough one of the things that both said is “It’s nice for a while (6 months or so), but after a bit you start to go a little stir crazy”.  And so eventually they left their jobs and moved on the greener pastures.  In any case this is quite well written and worth a read if you have retention issues at the company you are working for or a company you are considering going to.
