An Open Discussion


A couple weeks ago, I wrote about a new study that took a careful look at interactions in an open office. It found, contrary to popular belief, that moving to an open format made people less likely to talk face-to-face with their coworkers, and more likely to instead send dis...

Before I begin this post properly, I just wanted to say a big thank you to those of you who have commented or sent me messages wondering where I am. I really am very grateful for your concern.

Thoughts lately are just awful… 1) Cut my finger on a can the other day and realized that getting stabbed is probably just awful. 2) When you do the, “My name is AIIEEEEEEEEEE…..” reference from Splash and nobody gets it, it’s incredibly awkward for everyone.

I got this question last week during one of my seminars — the woman who asked the question was using her memory cards as backup, so she wouldn’t erase a card, ever. But it does bring up an interesting question, and one I’ve had many times before so I thought I’d share how I handle it (this isn’t...
