Propst is the father of the cubicle. More than 30 years after he unleashed it on the world, we are still trying to get out of the box. The cubicle has been called many things in its long and terrible reign. But what it has lacked in beauty and amenity, it has made up for in crabgrass-like persistence.I hardly ever work in a cube anymore, instead I'm in a walled office with 3 other folks. I actually like it much better.
