Modern technology

What’s the one piece of technology that no high tech company is without?

Whiteboards. To my mind, a huge improvement over their low tech predecessor, the blackboard, but some disagree. They prefer the tactile feel of chalk: I hate the dust, and even thinking about the scraping noise of back of the blackboard rubber against the board sets my teeth on edge.

The dominance of whiteboards rings true, though. I don’t think I’ve ever worked anywhere with enough whiteboards in the meeting rooms (or enough meeting rooms, where it’s been open plan offices, come to that).
