Cubes

I guess Intel has a lot of cubes in Santa Clara -- Intel Rethinks Cubicle Culture. And check out the Conan O'Brien clip cited in the article. I was on the floor laughing from my cube here in Tokyo! My goodness. Such fun. Can you image what Conan could do at Sun?

Anyway, more seriously, it seems that there is a new project at Intel to reduce distractions as well as increase face to face interactions within engineering groups -- "Quiet Time” on track – "No Email Day" is next! That's all good stuff. Everyone needs face to face time to collaborate, and everyone also needs time to work without having to always dodge meetings and other distractions. However, many groups are global now, so we always need to factor in the people on the other end of thin pipes and across big language, cultural, and distance barriers. This is absolutely an issue at Sun (as it is in all companies, I'm sure), and it's also an issue in the OpenSolaris community. A balance of all forms of communication is needed.
