Holding up the rear

Salon: Holding up the rear (via Bump)

Lewis discovered that Aerons could be seen as a potent symbol for the entire dot-com boom and bust. Lewis' desire soon morphed into derision. The chairs, he and his co-workers decided, were like "stupidity barometers."

"Any place with more than 10 of these things," he says, "automatically went into the 'stupid' stack."

Uhhh... just about everyone at work (except me) is sitting on an Aeron. (gulp)

If I could have a nice chair, this is the one I'd get. I had one of these at CEISS (without the pillow-thing on the top) and it was the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in.
