Wired Coffee Pots + Whiteboard

John Seely Brown's consultancy tried to use their space to encourage collaboration by:
- Creating wired coffee pots, that send everyone a message when new coffee has brewed so they end up bumping into each other.
- Putting in a floor to ceiling whiteboard by the coffee pots.
- Using cameras and screens to link the whiteboard in the New York office to the one in San Fran.
