The good news is we're working really, really hard on the next version of SketchUp. The bad news is that doesn't leave a lot of time for decorating our temporary office space. I'm afraid we're only about half done printing out and pinning up all the beautiful work you sent in response to our appeal from last month. All the same, here are some shots of the office as it looked today. It's getting there, I think. (I took these photos on Saturday, which is why the place looks so empty.)
I thought it would be nice to share a gallery of the images you submitted, too. THANK YOU to everyone—almost a hundred people so far—who sent us something. Your pictures (and kind words) keep us focused on what matters.
The temporary office pictured above is actually only three buildings away from our permanent location on the east side of Boulder. In the new space, we'll have the whole second floor to ourselves; our downstairs neighbors are the Garmin-Sharp pro cycling team.
|Our current office and the one we'll be moving into in a few months are only a short distance apart.|
|A gradient filter makes the sky over our office park seem more ominous than it really is.|
|Most of the windows in our future office look west at the Flatirons, Boulder's most recognizable natural landmark.|
Remember how I was bragging about our fancy new espresso machine a few weeks ago? Andrew and John managed to get it working for a couple of days, but then something happened, and now it's hors service. It turns out that a professional coffee behemoth like ours is only slightly easier to operate than an intergalactic starship. Here's hoping that the Caffeination Fairy grants our collective wish—and soon. I saw Jody asleep in the stairwell on Thursday.
|So close, and yet so far.|
