Too deep navigation on mobile phones

I find the developments in the whole mobile space quite exciting, but

applications that one uses regularly and as we become accustomed to
our phones we learn the paths to our favorite tools. The mobile phone
seems to becoming more and more multipurpose.

Your work environment: tell me how it's open, how it's closed.

I'm collecting some anecdotal data on the sorts of environments we work

If you don't mind taking a moment, could you answer these questions?

PLEASE respond to me directly. I'll be happy to summarize and share with
the list.

1. Are you allowed to try out software (apps, platforms, tools) on your
company computer with minimal hassle?

2. Can you use social software tools? (Linked In, Facebook, Instant

Behavior Design wins Graphic Design award

Its always great when one of our own does really well.
Chris Fahey (a contributor to this community) is one of the principals
at Behavior so I'd like to throw a little shout out and "Mazel Tov"

Of course, now I understand where you've been doing all that research
