  1. It really depends on the type of job and work culture if a cubicle is appropriate. In most of my jobs I like a semi open box. I do not enjoy working in an enclosed pen.

  2. he means to say, the aryan's who invaded half the world, of which belongs the babylonian society. they didnt have sewers in the 70s. i never saw ted's stds drop soo much

  3. Take out from the pink room. Does this explain the feminizing of pink? Is pink a color for women to wear to calm men down, or women?

  4. Misleading title. He only bashes cubicles for a second then moves on without explaining why they're bad or what the alternative would be. Having gone through several corporate moves over the years, cubicles are better than open concepts. I cannot imagine why any real worker wouldn't give up privacy. It's usually the bosses that either want eyes on everyone or high density floor space. I've gone from a 150 sq ft office to 65 to 50 over the years as office furniture companies convince management to invest in new floor plans to "increase collaboration". Code for cram more heads into a floor.

  5. I work in an office with cubicles, and I was excited to listen to this talk to hear how a business could change from cubicles to something else that would be more effective for employee happiness. The ideas he presents are great, but not solutions for existing businesses, so I felt the title to this talk was misleading. If you could get someone to discuss how to transform existing spaces from cubicles to better work space environments, that would be great!

  6. The guy who thought a pink room would calm down a serial killer must of been smoking some pink weed. #thatdankkoosh
