Where I Don't Work

As most of you know, I'm privileged to be able to work remotely for a great company whose headquarters are in Virginia. I travel there a few times each year to remind my coworkers what I look like and spend some quality time with my boss manager. I was there this week at the company's new headquarters in Reston:


Previously the employees were split between three buildings in two different locations. Now almost everyone is in this building and even I have my own cubicle, which I fully expect to be used for storage by the time of my next visit later this year.


The new building has a cafeteria (the sodas are free but empty cups cost $1.25), underground parking (watch out for the speed bumps), and a workout room. Meanwhile, here in Moscow, my drafty office occasionally smells like pot when the people downstairs get stressed out from printing and selling t-shirts.
