Seth Godin is yet another person wondering if office in its current form will survive the information age. Remember seeing some more articles like this and even some rabid rants about office in last couple of days.
While working in an advertising agency, where it helps to feed off the creative energies of one another, am left wondering if this was just another wishful thinking.

Did see odd status post enlisting people for that trip to Goa and also came across instances of people herding other people for the hurriedly organized party.
Surely this works when you are traveling. Just posting my travel plans helped when I last visited Mumbai. Was able to meet a lot of friends and generally have good time and salvage what looked like a dull and dreary trip.
