“And space will appear within space.”
First Prophecy of the Doesday Manifesto.

Which brings a whole cinematic feel to this campaign.

Empty meeting rooms as cinema? Woah there! Now, why cant we have a day of cinema running as a creative pop-in centre on Tuesdays if the room is free?


Make sure meeting room lights are off, not only is this helping your firm reduce it’s carbon foot print, it also makes it more obvious to see which rooms are empty all week around. But leave them on on Tuesday. Makes it look like the room are in use, thus cutting down on ad hoc meetings.

Venetian blinds are also useful in cloaking room usage.

I’m thinking Project Rooms.


Playing the long game is going to help with up holding the Doesday Manifesto. Eliminate some of the least used rooms.

Ask if anyone else can smell gas in specific rooms. Not only does this help bond with your colleagues, collaborative sniffing is so primal, so oxygenating, which can help get everyone revved up and keen to get out of the meeting in question.

Ask if anyone has seen the gas engineer in the east wing meeting room (the large meeting room), especially towards the end of the week.

“You know, I think I did.”

Job done.


Get the best room for your meetings. Don’t let a good decision be discussed, debated, disected, broken up, mashed, examined, argued, faught over in a second rate room just because that’s the only room available on Tuesday at 3pm. Bump it over to Friday and feel confident in what you have to say. Go tiger.

Meeting people is just too easy. Restraint people, restraint. Do we really need these types of enforcements? Free will is still under consideration, but we’re all in this together. Let’s make it easy to say no. Just don’t set your meeting up for a Tuesday. Simple.

That’s the first principle of the Doesbury Manifesto

“Do not do as you does by others.”

Lack decision making capacity for meeting free Tuesdays.

“Let’s play it by ear; I have the deliveries arriving around that time, and the order is twice the size this year. Uhuh. Saying that, they might cancel because of the cranes outside no 23, who are all currently held up here and I have to keep an eye on them. You know. Yeah. So, let’s pencil it in, but dont expect me there. Cheers. All the best. Good luck.”

But watching is much more a Tuesday thing, no?

May 10th 2007 was a Thursday. They’re smart. Really smart.

Appreciating the help. You Rock.
