[Space and Place] Office of the future, office of the past

On this picture, one can see my colleague Mr C. working in what some people can expect to be the office of the past (computerless). Others could expect it to be the office of the future (computer is so well integrated that you cannot see it). Well, the answer is simple: Mr. C. who is a real geek had to move away from his computer so that he could read paper to avoid disruptions or any possible computer-related distraction (IM, e-mail, newsfeed reading, web-browsing).
