  • The company I work for just moved into new digs. The building is the smaller sibling of one of those giant, all-glass skyscrapers that can blind you when the sun bounces off them in just the right way. There are lots of suits milling about these office towers, talking hurriedly on their cell phones, wheeling and dealing.

    So I was pretty shocked when I was exploring our new offices for the first time and came around a corner and saw this staring at me.

    It sure beats those godawful motivational posters that most offices have.
