Who needs a Web Office when you have... an inflatable office

While flexing my typing fingers and getting ready to respond to Dan Farber's post about Web Office (in which he interviewed Dave Girouard, VP and GM of Google Enterprise), I came across an alternative 'office' setup.

While flexing my typing fingers and getting ready to respond to Dan Farber's post about Web Office (in which he interviewed Dave Girouard, VP and GM of Google Enterprise), I came across an alternative 'office' setup. As described by CNET's Mike Yamamoto:

"Even the most rugged road warriors may occasionally find the need for a little privacy. But if time is scarce--and budgets are tight--one option is the "Office in a Bucket," an inflatable structure that can be stored in a plastic bucket that also contains the device that supplies the air. Estimated time of inflation: 8 minutes."

Indeed as Girouard himself implied, you need to think outside the square:

“Web Office–it’s a kin to saying where is the Google mainframe or buggy whip, or picking up where Corel left off, with word processing, presentation and spreadsheets [...] We think about what would be useful today and how people would access it. We aren’t going to revisit the battles that have already been fought.”

Well I can't think of many more innovative and practical things than an inflatable office. Now that's what I call forward thinking! I wonder how long before Google acquires it...
