UPDATED: Hey! I’m Talkin’ Over Here!

I was thinking about this for a long time before writing it down in 1999, and there are still interesting problems to be worked on here (and I still don't hear people talk about these when they go on and on about how cool voice interfaces will be when they become practical).

Do we have "sound curtains" to block out sound? Do we just pay more attention to acoustics in the design of work spaces? Do we make workstations interchangeable with thin client technology and have a mix of "open" and "closed" work areas for people to use, depending upon their needs of the moment?
