Trends or Fads?

  • Virtual windows and skylights. Every cubicle can be a corner office in the future! This could go over big in rainy old Seattle. The photo above is a "SkyCeiling" marketed by an Iowa company called The Sky Factory.

  • Co-ed college dorm rooms, also know as genderblind or gender-neutral housing.

  • Hypermiling, which a Washington Post story earlier this summer defined as the practice of "changing your driving behavior to coax better gas mileage out of your car." Common techniques include driving slowly, braking as little as possible and limiting AC use. Gas prices have guaranteed this movement all kinds of ink, pixels and air time this summer -- positive and negative.
