Besides the beautiful wood grain, it seem that no computer was complete in the late 1970s and early 1980s without a sturdy fern. I have several computers now and not one of them in anywhere near a plant. Perhaps that explains why I am always so tense all the time or why the air seems to heavy with carbon dioxide? I guess I would need to be some sort of scientist to know for sure. But I would guess at the very least having some green near your machine couldn’t hurt.
Maybe it is time for a new type of cubicle accessory? The e-Fern?
