Not-desking

Work from the park

There are companies that will rent you a desk/pod from which to work. They’ll provide network connection, power, a desk, and facilities.

Lots of large corporations are reducing their costs by reducing the buildings/floors they rent as office space, by increasing “hot-desking” - in their rented buildings.

My job largely comprises: emails; meetings; tel-conf’s; writing/updating reports

I propose an outdoor space which provides all the facilities you need for your job: connectivity, power, shelter from weather, loos and coffee.

So. I sit in a beautiful green space, surrounded by birdsong, working away. Emails, connectivity, coffee from a passing cycle-espresso-vendor.

The idea: a park or outdoor space providing all the facilities required to do a day’s “office work”, but without the office. Connectivity, power, shelter from the weather, loos, coffee.

And more time outside: physically and mentally better

       If it's a //park or outdoor space//, how does it provide shelter from the weather?
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 02 2019
  

       Tensile fabric canopies to keep the rain off mostly, carefully placed planting <shrubbery> to shelter from the wind. Timber-built shelter-pods...

       Jolly good. Count me in.

       Count ? You've always said you're a viscount up to now. Have you been upgraded ?   

       Besides, we're sure your brother always calls you a "c... maybe we misheard ...   

       Ideal for combining the necessary evil of "work" with the joyous entertainment of Poisoning Pigeons In The Park ... <link>   

       If the "shelter" were a camouflaged hide, it would allow the occupant(s) to indulge in a little vermin removal; squirrels, rats, politicians ...

       //Have you been upgraded ?// I saved all the box-tops and sent them in with the money.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 02 2019
  

       ... or more accurately, "I instructed the servants to save the box tops and then had them send them in with some money that I stole or obtained fraudulently from someone else".   

       Using your own money is rather less likely than you stabbing your own eyes out with a blunt pencil.

       There's bound to be a politician somewhere who will promise you that, if you'll only vote for them ...
