I recently read a New York Times article about how companies are tweaking open plan workspaces to make them less irritating. The problem is that workers don’t have privacy or quiet in a cubicle farm. The most creepy solution is from Autodesk where they secretly play a whooshing noise throughout the building. Holy crap, that is disturbing. I have a better idea, give people offices you cheapskates!
I was about to write an essay on this topic, but then I remembered that I already did.
