Apple’s new spaceship campus has one flaw – and it hurts • Bloomberg
Mark Bergen:
<p>Surrounding the building, located in Cupertino, California, are 45-foot tall curved panels of safety glass. Inside are work spaces, dubbed “pods,” also made with a lot of glass. Apple staff are often glued to the iPhones they helped popularize. That’s resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents. 

Some staff started to stick Post-It notes on the glass doors to mark their presence. However, the notes were removed because they detracted from the building’s design, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing anything related to Apple. Another person familiar with the situation said there are other markings to identify the glass. 

Apple’s latest campus has been lauded as an architectural marvel. The building, crafted by famed architect Norman Foster, immortalized a vision that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had years earlier. In 2011, Jobs reportedly described the building “a little like a spaceship landed.” Jobs has been credited for coming up with the glass pods, designed to mix solo office areas with more social spaces.</p>

Seems more like an argument for not looking at your phone while walking, but glass demarcation is always a pain in offices.

Slack is the opposite of organizational memory
Slack verhindert kontinuierliches Arbeiten. Da man permanent unterbrochen wird. Auch die Suche nach Sachen ist schwierig.

Slack is the opposite of organizational memory
slack empowers your worst people to overwhelm your best. It has that in common with the open office.

Slack is the opposite of organizational memory
My argument is that it destroys teams’ ability to think, plan & get complex work out the door.
