  • Salon interviews New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer about the changing workplace: “[F]or many folks, to have a successful career, you also need to have work/life balance. And that is why flexibility, paid leave, and advance notifications are not perks; they’re basic components of the modern workplace.
  • In news that says a lot about what’s in store for the future of work, Breather, the world’s leading provider of on-demand, private workspace (and whom we’ve profile here and here), raises $20 million in a Series B round led by Peter Thiel‘s Valar Ventures.
  • And finally — critically — as the standing desk gains traction in offices across the nation, NYT investigates what to wear when you use one. For example: “Pencil skirts are easier to stand in than sit,” said one interviewee. “If you’re wearing tights, you never have that awful elastic waistband situation.” #themoreyouknow
