    Paying Occasional Homage to Self-expression in the Workplace
    Thursday, July 29, 1999

    Do you have a cool workspace? We'd love to see it and perhaps feature it in an upcoming TechThursday issue. Send e-mail nominations to:

    Lots of offices have views; not many let you look down onto home plate at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

    Executives meet in CEO Douglas H. Trotter's office.
    From their executive conference room on the eighth floor of the Warehouse at Camden Yards, the folks at tech start-up eOriginal can take in the games free of charge.

    That's not to say that they don't spend most of their time working. But on evenings when there's a game, employees sometimes wander over to have a look. And on opening day, the company brought in some clients to give them a few innings' worth of entertainment.

    Another view from the CEO's office provides a view of PSINet Stadium, where the Ravens play.
    The rest of the space at eOriginal, which is developing technology to make documents whose originals exist in electronic form only, is more conventional: a conference table in the chief executive's office, computers and a few industry doodads.
