The Cubicle: Your Home Away From Home?

Please, please help me! This article is totally serious ... and it makes me feel like either throwing up or hitting something or maybe both at the same time. I wonder why that is?

    Ugh - cubicles. Not without reason did Douglas Coupland (at least, I *think* it was Douglas Coupland) refer to them as "Veal Fattening Pens".

    Yup, it was Coupland.

    The writer of this article doesn't sound like s/he is talking about PEOPLE. Also, the focus is very much on getting something, and not in a good way. I'm not opposed to any article on work productivity and efficiency, but there's something cold about the approach here. Maybe that's why you were so put off?

    Yeah, I figured out that the article got to me because of the way it dehumanized employees.
