a friend of mine, Michael Zeltner, had the idea of a “geek office” which consists roughly of a bunch of friends that meet at a place where god has given WLAN and hack together, not necessarily on the same project but to share cigarettes and caffeine (at least thats how I understood it)
brings us to our state of the art research right accross my office door – the Virtual Office of the Future where DFKI, Fraunhofer IESE and RICOH work together on future office environments.
I dream of a coherence of the social aspects mentioned by Michael and the non intrusive, embedded, simple-to-use office tech of the future. Knowledge Working should be like hanging out with friends in the cyberspace. High tech, but looks like an iPod.
oh yeah, and I am in the middle of coding stuff for it. freaky.
