I was reading about the mobile phone box (via) which reminded me of something I had thought earlier. I know pay phones are dying but can we keep phone booths around? Give people who don’t want to subject others to their conversations a place to take a call. Plus, the lack of phone booths no doubt has something to do with the lack of superhero program related activities.

I had a similar conversation with Kraig a while ago, ‘cept we discussed whether companies should have booths or those sound blocking dome things for employees to make calls instead of in their cubical.
When people use cell phones in the office, it can be a disruption, especially if their connection isn’t so good.
Kraig’s point, which I agree with, was that people are less apt to stay on the phone too long if they can’t do so privately. Talk goes down, productivity goes up. I still like the idea, because people will have personal calls at work, privacy or not. I know it’s a tangent, but your post reminded me of it.
Dude, I was in on that conversation. Not only that, but the way I remember it I was the one who had the phone booth idea… GET OUT OF MY HEAD!
Hmm… what about making it the other way around .. people that want silence could step into the phone booths
They should make cubicles out of cell-jamming wallboard.
Or we could just make idiots walk funny, by shoving the phones up their asses.
