TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
My previous position was with a software developer who published computer
games. Our offices were in this cool converted heritage building. The space
(several floors of what seems like it used to be a factory or warehouse) was
subdivided into large rooms that housed ten-twelve team members. There were
no cubes and only offices (with lots of windows to the hallway) for the
senior management. Just a bunch of desks arrayed in a somewhat hap hazard
and flexible manner.
Many people may cringe at the lack of privacy, but it fostered a creative
environment and camaraderie amongst team members. Another example, I think,
of office geography responding well to function. DB.
