Darwin and the Sandwalk: Open plan offices

sandwalk-open-planIncreasingly we are coming under pressure to move into open plan office environments in all walks of life. This can come as a shock to most academics who are often introverted by nature and are good at beavering away in their own offices. I can’t imagine the Victorian scientists being good at sharing space. Given that Darwin didn’t particularly like mingling with people I doubt that it would have made him more productive!
