TechCrunch -- To fight the scourge of open offices, ROOM sells rooms
'...The importance of privacy goes beyond improved productivity when workers are alone. If they’re exhausted from overstimulation in a chaotic open office, they’ll have less energy for purposeful collaboration when the time comes. The bustle could also make them reluctant to socialize in off-hours, which could lead them to burn out and change jobs faster. Tech companies in particular are in a constant war for talent, and ROOM Ones could be perceived as a bigger perk than free snacks or a ping-pong table that only makes the office louder. -- “I don’t think the solution is to go back to a world of cubicles and corner offices,” Meisner-Jensen concludes. It could take another decade for office architects to correct the overenthusiasm for open offices despite the research suggesting their harm. For now, ROOM’s co-founder is concentrating on “solving the issue of noise at scale” by asking, “How do we make the current workspaces work in the best way possible?”'

Serverless Architectures
There are many benefits to such an approach. As Sam Newman notes in his Building Microservices book, systems built this way are often “more flexible and amenable to change,” both as a whole and through independent updates to components; there is better division of concerns; and there are also some fascinating cost benefits, a point that Gojko Adzic discusses in this excellent talk.
