General discussion
   Goals Focused work
zoned area for focused work but most other zones are collaborative
explicit rules in focus area to enforce quietness
shared understanding of meaning of headphones
Connecting with others
sharing a place with other workers people are like-minded, and may become familiar with each other over time (community element)
                 variety and volume of noises can be distracting
other people present and can be crowded
headphones as sign of ‘do not disturb’ may be overruled by requests to order and or by other people
no other people present worker is able to determine if and how interruptions occur.
other people are usually present people differ widely in their experiences and intentions of being in this place (work, leisure)
familiarity is less likely
          no other people in close proximity
