Home away from home

I was helping out the Boss yesterday by putting together a poster for him to take to the "Dwight School Career Day" (which he should be arriving at right now). He wanted photos of various "technology" items (PC, data jack, servers, switches, etc) so I had my camera with me.

click me!

...Which means that you can now see the disaster area that I call my office! The vantage point is standing on a chair at the door. The Danger Men sign was a present from ashacat. And, if you didn't know already, this should tell you that I am a very visual person.

Clearly a den of iniquity. Even if you weren't a visual person, you'd NEED tons of stuff up on the cube walls to save you from all that BEIGE.

Oh yes, the office color scheme is HORRID. The cubes are 'greige', with medium gray trim. The doors and wall trim are a dull shade of what might have been Prussian Blue before it had its soul removed. The carpets are a 'dirt hiding' blend of browns, grays, and beige. Really quite awful.

If you shut your eyes and we rolled you to my office, you'd not be able to tell the difference. The colors are utterly uninspiring and almost soul-sucking. I DO have big windows nearby and can see light, though.

Back last summer I started holding a bi-weekly project status meeting -- the number of attendees was too large to fit in 'our' cramped, windowless conference room. So, I moved it into the big confernece room that we share with another department. Perhaps it's the shared aspect, but neither department had ever used the room much in the four years we've been in the building. But the thing is, the room is big and one whole wall is window. It looks over Market St.; a view to the West, so for most of the day it's suffused with this wonderful indirect light.

Since I've been dragging people into the room every other week for the past eight months, it seems to have caught on. I see more and more people using the room now. I guess it took a 'basement dweller' to seek the light. :-)

Funny but Dilbert-like story about my big, evil corporation:

The basement was never used for offices for all but the most troglodyte staff (like "Records"). Then, we had a space crunch and they decided to move people down there.

NO ONE wanted to work in the basement. So what did they do? Improve the environment? Put in new lighting? Offer incentives to WANT to be there like make it more convenient with snack machines/etc.? NO! They changed the NAME of the place to "Lower Level" and insisted everyone call it that. They even changed the buttons on the elevator to say "LL" instead of "B".

It's so funny it's sick.
