Office Space

At work last week, we moved into our new office area. It evolved from this:

To this:

It’s in the basement of the Harre Union. We like it so far. Our former space was bursting at the seams. What we have now is much more friendly to creativity and collaboration. You can see more photos here.

Cue the theme music from “Dallas”

I spent last week in Dallas at a conference.

At said conference, we paid a visit to a small, obscure, out-of-the-way football stadium.

It has an unobtrusive big-screen display.

I learned a lot at the Emerge conference’s seminars, and it was a fun trip all around. More photos here.

A bit more about my dream coffee table

A recent NYT Q&A alerted me to designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby and their extremely awesome loop coffee table. It seems to be priced at more than two thousand American dollars at this site. I’m no CPA, but that puts said table out of my responsible financial reach for the moment. Still, it’s fun to ponder.

New MapQuest logo: Hmm …

Mashable posts about the new MapQuest design, which looks great. I’m not so sure about the logo. The “Q” appears to be floating in space or something.

Like many, I used to be a full-time MapQuest user, but lately I’ve gravitated to Google Maps.

Edit: It’s an exponent. Interesting!
