Movin’ on up!
We moved to new offices last weekend. Our last intergalactic HQ was woefully small for how large we’ve grown.
In our last offices we did everything ourselves: networking, wiring, PBX (Trixbox) etc… It really showed.
This is Sarah’s desk. Throughout the office cables
hung from the ceiling
In the “Fishbowl”, a conference room, we had a NAS device whirring so loudly you have to shout to be heard.
We had so many people packed into the 5th floor (main) office that for lack of space I was sharing a conference room with Mark as an office. We turned a storage closet into a conference room, hence the name “the closet”. And Roy was holding conference calls in the reception area daily. Worst of all, I’m a little embarrassed to report that we’ve had so many bodies packed into such a small place the place smelled a little funky. Or maybe is was our old fridge that stunk regardless of how much we cleaned it.
Yesterday, Monday February 1, MindTouch moved to a new space, two block away from our last, in Columbia Center. It’s twice the size of our previous offices. To commemorate the occasion the sales and engineering team wore suits. I had meetings in San Mateo and missed the affair, but Roy shot some photos and posted them at his blog.
The new office is located across the street from the W Hotel and is half a block from Carl Strauss. We’ll be hosting an office warming party in the near future. I’m looking forward to entertaining on our amazing patio.
