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 at the nest
Clearly, there’s no stopping us now.

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 …

Yeah, but do the chairs run on diesel?

it may be nostalgia talking, but the doors were more “street” and definitely gave us more cred during the music 2.0 rumbles. I heard at hype machine they propped their laptops on flaming garbage cans.

@brian – just for the record, here’s the original birthplace of the Hype Machine: http://blogs.sun.com/plamere/entry/offices_of_music_2_011

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.
