  • Working is living The line between working and living becomes blurred. More and more work is accomplished in virtual space, and less in face-to-face meetings, but all forms of interaction will find their place in the working environment, making it a richer more productive place. The experience of working becomes in some ways more lonely, with a work force of free agents, and more connected, with group collaboration the rule. Consequently, workers will hunger for affiliation and identity affirmation. One of the most entertaining moments of the day came in the late afternoon, when breakout teams presented their visions of magazine cover stories for the year 2010. This was a synthesis of some of the major ideas presented during the day, and there were some flashes of brilliance in the headline writing. One presentation coined a term for what happens when teams tackle and solve tough problems. "Cydron," refers to a spontaneous happening in or during which people solve thorny problems. It's what happens when satori meets solution in a thought-space. As one quipster put it, it's a "brain rave." But what else will working, the process itself, become? A few thoughts: o Decision support technology will reach beyond white collar work to enable front-line workers in warehouses or on the retail floor to exercise judgement based upon hard information. o Spontaneous "brain-raves" will be generated. Mini think-tanks or brain trusts called Cydrons will pull together multi-disciplinary teams in virtual space to come up with creative solutions to problem. o However, there will still be a premium on those who can execute, rather than merely generate, creative solutions. o The Shut-Up revolution: Ubiquitous and high-bandwidth technology will create an unimaginably wired world. If every surface is not a computer, then most appliances will be. It will be essential for ordinary humans to utilize selective response measures, to be able to control who has access, at what level, when. o Attention-Divided Syndrome. Many participants felt that multi-tasking is self-limiting: it will become necessary for people to establish rigid rules about when and when not to use technology. One participant feared that instant-messaging-like technologies would create an epidemic of "glib, facile thinking. As the access to information grows, the premium placed on high-quality thinking will have to rise again." o The macho of overwork: for many workers today, long hours are a badge of honor. Due to the human need to be valued in a group, by a group, even by Supermoms, this is not likely to change. o Some felt that the necessity for cooperative, collaborative work was overplayed. "The Pontiac Aztec is an example of what happens when the process is beautiful but the product stinks," says Bob Thomas of Accenture, currently co-authoring a book on geeks and geezers. "The Miata, on the other hand, was designed by a maverick. We must recognize the anti-collaborative spirit, the counter to groupthink, the unexpected corner from which brilliance sometimes flashes." We want to create a new business, calling it FOTO, because it represents a new way of thinking that's going on in the business world as well as in life. People are moving faster, and they want things that will respond to them faster. The first thing we decided to do was visit the people who are recreating the world of work. We called on some twenty companies, took pictures, looked at how they were working, what they were using, the kind of work they did, who did the work, what their attitudes were, and what their spaces looked like. We found some amazing stuff, like, in San Francisco. Their offices were furnished from Home Depot with some doors atop sawhorses. While large corporations and new businesses in the 1970s and '80s emphasized efficiency, it became clear to us that passion was more important in the late 1990s. Passion, we were beginning to learn from our own experience, will deliver the great ideas--and that's what these entrepreneurial businesses thrive on. So we focus to small businesses, a growing market for furniture that's not well served. We wanted to show these young firms that we understand how they work, their culture, and their attitude. Our first step was to focus on work-style or lifestyle imagery in our online selling tools. The online store was the first thing we created to show our brand and give easy access to our products. Going beyond existing self-service online stores, we made sure there was a human being at the other end of the transaction, someone who knows about office planning and furniture needs who becomes a partner in setting up your office. To create a bond with our customers, we supplied them with information on ergonomics, things you can get in a hardware store, ideas about office planning, and interviews with designers. When you're selling furniture online, the most common comment is, "I want to touch it, feel it." So we knew we needed a store, a clean and simple low-cost space just like any start-up (the Herman Miller RED store/office opened this summer on 15th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues in Manhattan).
