Just after I read the NYT piece, the Chron had a nice story on home office redecoration. I'd argue it was actually home office layouts--much more in keeping with the tenor of the times! Here are the bullets, clearly from a rip-and-read service:
*Determine desk placement by asking "what do I want to be looking at while working?";
*Avoid glare on computer monitors--don't place them opposite windows;
*Give yourself at least 42 inches from the back of your chair to the wall behind you;
*Avoid lining up furniture along the wall; and
*Plan it all out on grid paper.
Frankly, I trust you to ignore that last bullet-------
