Re: Google wave

When I'm at the office I have people constantly interrupting me with stupid
questions, people speaking very loudly and laughing even louder and people
playing music on their computers... I think that being able to focus on my
work is not an option when I'm at work (I know, ironic, isn't it?)

A few months ago, during a major outage, I was in conference with about
twenty people trying to resolve the issue (customer was on the line) and
some people just started chatting like they were at the pool on a saturday I
had to actually mute the call and ask them nicely (maybe not so nicely) to
shut up.

My point is... I can't really focus on anything while I'm at the office, so
wave/constant e-mails/constant personal e-mail on gmail/chatting with a LOT
of people... that's just part of the problem...
