Goodbye, Ping Pong Table… Hello, New Desks
Deep down, we all knew that the ping pong table was a temporary thing… something to fill the open area near the windows until we, eventually, built out the space with more desks.
Sadly, that day has arrived. It’s a good thing, in that our business is growing and we need the space. But a central piece of the office, something that’s been around since our first month here… is now gone.
I took this photo on my way out the door, last Friday. A few folks wound up transporting it over to the other side of the building, where we have additional floorspace, but where nothing is built out. As a sidenote, to this day… I still haven’t seen the other side of the office.
This morning, two guys came in to set up shop and install some new cubes. Desks, really, as the configuration is a lot more open.
Facing the window (and facing Jackson), the left set of desks.
In July of 2008, we had a small build-out of some additional desks. And it’s difficult to imagine them NOT being there today. I’m sure that in the future, this area will seem completely normal… but for now, it’s hard not to imagine all the games, the Pingmaster Trophy and Tournament, and the occassional lunch that took place here.
