the CEO's window


An office in the Wall Street area -- an e-marketing startup that launched last year -- has its personnel on display to pedestrians, goldfish-bowl-fashion.
Behind one window you see staffers sitting at long tables, working at their PCs. Another window shows us the CFO and/or CTO, working two to an office.
And finally, the CEO's room, where he can be seen pacing around, talking on his cell, or seated, staring at a computer screen with feverish concentration.
On his window ledge, slightly recessed below street level, he has arranged his public-facing decor: a guitar with an American flag facade, and stacks of books, with Risk to Succeed and Think & Grow Rich topmost on the stacks.
This is not invented -- this is an actual photo of a real place.
