Whiteboards for Brainstorming

Notice that the entire wall of this guy’s office is one giant whiteboard covered with brainstorming ideas! I love this; I think it is a great way to design, by sketching or jotting notes quickly on the wall, where they can surround you and help you always keep the task at hand in mind.

That’s why I want to use the walls in our own “Lab 319” to hang up things that we are working on. I hope to get us a mobile whiteboard soon so we can do our brainstorming all around the lab.
