on 'space'

Do I mean Outer Space or Inner Space? Which is more important?

Anyway, just a thought. I am pretty particular about my work environment. For example, I hate working at home, even though it's often the only place I can also get a desk of proper size (huge). I rarely studied at home, and now that I think of it, I never knew where to look for the environment I liked best.

Now, I think it might be beneficial for a library or social space to somehow convey what type of work environment it has. Like, "Room X has huge tables, great for group projects or an individual doing research and needing to lay out lots of papers."

These 'ads' of sorts could also be used to convey information. Some people don't realize the potential that some work spaces have. Referring back to the prior sentence, not everyone thinks about using Group Project areas when they need a huge table. You could rephrase it as "Room X has huge tables, great for group projects. It is also very useful for an individual doing research and needing to lay out a lot of papers." (I would bold that part so people don't miss it).

I thought about this while taking a bathroom break from working in a Starbucks during a holiday.

big tables are key- but if someone needs a sign more than 'big table room' to inform them on how they could utilize the space properly, there might be something a little odd about that.h

i agree with katy... at some point you just have to figure it out for yourself.

so strange that my work computer is letting me comment on a blog. it must have found this post especially worth while.
