What should we do with office buildings we no longer use?
COVID-19 has left the world changed with traditional business evolving rapidly to working from home.
Large organisations, corporates, and enterprises which still hold thousands of seats in office buildings around the globe are starting to realise they no longer need the space they once occupied and now face the dilemma of what to do with unused offices.
Back in April when we all started to navigate the waters of global quarantine I wrote an article where I made the following prediction:
“We may find in the future large companies with thousands of employees where the only physical footprint will be a series of racks in a data centre.“

In a previous article I wrote a few years ago, Welcome to the Note Taking Apocalypse, I discussed the issue of app store choice when it came to finding a note taking application that had a balanced mix of key functions with an interface that feels frictionless which gets out of the users way.
It’s not something that I’ve been able to easily answer in the past, and it’s still something that I struggle with regularly. On a good day, when I feel motivated to put fingers to keys, the reasons I write can vary from the exploration of a single thought right down to the simple basic premise of telling a really good story.
