This is a really interesting article, and the author may very well be right.  I concur with his take on Office Buildings, the way we all do business in the future may very well impact the office world, the “on demand space” as he calls it is very much here to stay in the near term.  We used to say that capital is king…it may very well now be that flexibility is king….enjoy.
