Wanted: Office charm

From Simon Doonan in Slate on how to charm co-workers: “Among the many changes that have taken place, the biggest and least charming concerns interpersonal communication — by which I mean the total absence thereof. Workers across the globe now spend their days in charmless monastic seclusion lost in a cloud of emails, to mention nothing of wasting eons of company time updating their Facebook pages with frolicsome, sun-blistered Cancun vacation snaps. Reintroducing charm into this drab, Orwellian environment will take commitment and verve.”
