It looks like my question on office environments and morale/productivity
touched a BIG nerve, so it will take me a while to work through all the
responses. Just a first-blush summary, though: it appears that pods and
window-less offices are reproducing and spreading like viruses, negatively
affecting worker morale and productivity. Especially for "creative
