New desks at the nest

Yes, this is big news … we have some new furniture at the nest.  No longer are there doors on file cabinets masquerading as desks. Everyone now has a real desk.

New desks a the nest

    Like the combination of wood and black. Are these VIKA FURUSKOG table tops from Ikea? I was just looking at them for our new office…

      These are definitely IKEA desks, not sure if they are VIKA FURUSKOG though …

    Um, do you have a double-end punching bag in the middle of your office?

      Not quite in the middle, but yeah … it’s an everlast. I think most music recommendation companies are shifting away from having a guitar hero setup in the office to having a punching bag. Comes in handy every time you find out about another band with a name like “original cast” or ‘various artists’

      mike, it’s how the CEO and founders resolve disputes. It’s better than a board meeting. Works best when you’re holding a martini in your other (non-punching) hand.
