Basically a nice plasma screen is placed next to the exit of
ones workplace. Employees may post messages onto the
screen via internal e-mail requesting things from the outside
world e.g If anyone is going to the post office could you get

shop could you get me some rizla (Jane - HR) - people usually

reduce the amount of people stopping work to go and get
sweets thus improving productivity?
