This is something I saw recently, a large chalkboard – like the kind they used to have in schools – on a hallway at a client. People come by and write notes. I’ve seen a countdown to the holidays, reminders to work together, things about upcoming games, and more. Occasionally someone comes by and erases everything and it starts again.
It’s interesting, a way for people to have a voice, be social, have some fun, and all for a department that is all about technology. It’s a bit of culture I like, one that I’ll look for places to use.
