Set up your work space so that you're in a corner with your monitor
facing the door. Then noone can get behind you.

That is a worthy suggestion if you can do it - but many of us in cube-land
are prevented from doing so by the physics involved. However, for cube
dwellers there is a solution of sorts (if your company will allow it). In
one company I got a spring-loaded window curtain-rod and made a fabric
'door' for my space - when the curtain was drawn I was unavailable, when it
was open I was available.

For those that want to be creative - try using a shower curtain, attach a
shower head to the inside cube wall so that it can be seen from the
outside, place a bathmat in front of the entrance and hang a robe nearby (or
towel) can do all sorts of fun things with cubes if management has a
sense of humor. Though that does seem to be something of an oxymoron,
doesn't it?

Just some Friday thoughts...
