several small ones. That is exactly what my conference rooms are for.
There is also a feature in TAPestry to DETACH the bottom half chat window
to make it separate and bigger. With all that talking, I don't know how
many people knew and did this. Sometimes it helps.

objects like pets and notes, as you describe here.
At your leisure, I would like to invite you all to check out my office
(Keiko's Office) at S2309. From reception, you can take the elevator
(click on the elevator in the room map or type: /el) and click on 23rd or
type /23rd. Then you get to 23rd floor lobby. Go to the South Wing by
clicking in the map or type /s. Then find #2309 and click on the green
link or type /2309.
Once you enter my room, click on what's here, right next to who's here,
just under supplies and update toward to the top right. You will see
objects in my office. Pepper is my virtual dog (an example of virtual
pet). Pepper will react to you command when you /pet, /tease, /feed and
so forth. There is also a note called "Welcome to my office" on the
verrrry bottom of the list (an example of virtual note). My short
welcome message is written on it. When you click on the objects from the
right, examples of commands show up in the window to the left. Make sure
to use slash (e.g. /pet pepper) to see the effect of interacting with
I have quite a few objects in my office so you can sample and think about
what you may want to use. Then start from #5 on Things to Try.
