Openplan offices and the cocktail party effect!

Yesterday (30/4) the BBC had an interesting half hour programme about Don Broadbent (don’t say – or even think – who?!)  Please listen and reflect, before the week is up to: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01gvkw7    You will find headphones far better than a single speaker for this programme.

Don’s work, as you will discover, triggered step changes but he never lost his enthusiasm to learn from the work of others.  Not a bad aspiration for us all!
