The Los Angeles Times reports:

"In the 1970s, American corporations typically thought they needed 500 to 700 square feet per employee to build an effective office. Today's average is a little more than 200 square feet per person, and the space allocation could hit a mere 50 square feet by 2015, said Peter Miscovich, who studies workplace trends as a managing director at brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle."

However, it appears that the incredible shrinking cubicle is already upon us--and has been for a number of years. Bob Fisher, president and general manager of Creative Solutions, a company that specializes in modular workstations, told Wired magazine back in 2000 that he's seen cubicles "as small as 5 by 6, or 30 square feet."

That happens to be five square feet less than the recommended amount of space the University of California Cooperative Extension says a veal calf should be allotted.

This must be why my cubicle-mate Mike is so tender, so well-marbled, and goes so well with a nice pinot grigio.
