Susan Orlean was on the radio yesterday talking about an article she wrote about treadmill desks. I didn't catch the whole thing because I was in the car, but I heard her say it was beneficial to have co-workers walking and talking side by side because it's great exercise, and they're more likely to listen than when they're having a conversation face to face. When I got home I checked out what one of these things looks like and found the above photo, which already looks outdated. How much longer before each of us is running alone in mid- air, wearing a monochrome space suit and a helmet that allows us to go to a meeting, have sex and eat lunch with a friend all in 10 minutes. I can't wait, maybe then I'll finally get some writing done.
