We all live in a yellow submarine? When I go to work in the morning, in the office building that hosts our BPM research group, on the way up to our level I come by this big breakout room that hosts a number of computer scientists, working away at the next generation software algorithms and iPad applications (I assume). I have never actually been in that room, but every now and then the door is left ajar for a while and I can spot couches, lots (I mean, lots!) of monitors, the odd scientist, a number of Lara Croft posters, and the usual room equipment you'd probably expect from computer scientists (and, no, it's not like that evil Dennis guy from the Jurassic Park movie, buried in chips, coke, and flickering code screens? It's also not like the command room from the Nebuchadnezzar, Neo's hovercraft in the Matrix movies, although I still strongly believe these green lines of code make a good screensaver).
