Get rid of the tables and flip charts

I'm not sure I entirely buy their arguments, but here are some fairly compelling reasons why Viv McWaters thinks tables (particularly rounds) should be banned from meetings, and why Chris Corrigan thinks we should rebel against the tyranny of flipcharts.

I love that people are thinking this deeply about the environments in which we meet. It's easy to let the details slide (or not even think about how the space could be used more effectively), but they really do send messages that we may not even realize we're sending.
