As Office Space Shrinks, So Does Privacy for Workers #culture

Right.    My thoughts on this:

  1. This confirms that the move to open office designs is motivated, above all else, by cost savings.
  2. Those who do say they like it are either lying or acutely un-self-aware.  There’s no way all that dense humanity is good for concentration or productivity.  It may be “fun”, as suggested by one commentator, but in my experience it just leads to high levels of interruption, distraction, and off-task activity.
