Hey! I’m Talkin’ Over Here!

With all the hype over voice interfaces for computers, we must consdier the social implications of the noise pollution it would cause. Already cube environments can be a pain when people are using their telephones or holding conversations.

Office social protocols may require the ability to "go private," even in a cube environment. I for one would like to work in a space that I could shut off from the surroundings for serious hacking sessions.
