Collaborative Common Space for Self-Organizing Teams No Longer Needed?

You be the judge.

It’s here. The next wave of telepresence and freakishly weird robots with floating heads ‘bumping’ in the halls.

Have we gone to far? Or is this our future?

  1. I work for a SaaS implementation partner. In my organization, we mostly work from offices in our homes, collaborating with each other and with customers all over the world. We use Skype for IM and audio calls, screen sharing, and even file transfers, but we never use the video function. And I do mean, NEVER. The pretty blonde lady with the scarf doesn’t sit at a computer in her home office all day, because she’s well-dressed and her hair is combed. On a good day, I’m wearing a T-shirt with a gray alien head, captioned “No Estamos Solos.” On a bad day, I look like one of ZZ Top’s roadies. One of my colleagues tells me she only changes out of her pajamas to leave the house, and sometimes, she forgets.

    Sorry, but I don’t see either of these as ground-floor investment opportunities.

    1. Hah! Thanks for your honesty on this! Maybe… it depends on the culture… and what they deem ‘necessary’ for success…

      If people in PJ’s works… then it works! LOL
