My Labor Day blog post, "It's High Time for the 4-Day Work Week," seems to have struck a nerve.

A flock of tweets responding to the post said things like "way overdue" and "absolutely it's time" and "yes, please." Andrew Celentano (@taxonophilia) of the Melrose Asset Group business-consulting firm in Winchester, Mass., applauded the idea of a four-day work week, tweeting that "it would help address unemployment and people could spend more time participating in their communities."

Now I'd like to offer advice on how you can get a four-day work week -- either by talking to your current boss or by finding a firm or nonprofit that embraces the concept.
