A forum from BT on 'Smart Buildings' prompts some reaction to its proposals for 'migration chairs' - furniture it has designed for wireless, on the move, work-anywhere-you-like-inthe-office, 'touchdown areas' and 'corrals' - tiny spaces for staff to take refuge in or perform work which needs no distraction. One audience member asked how managers could keep track of slackers.
