Almost there...

Wednesday, June 13, 2001

I went to visit Kevin last night at the new Yahoo! campus. On the one hand it was really cool. They really make a space for you to live and work. There's a great gym, basketball and volleyball courts, foosball tables here and there, plus a pool table and an air hockey table in the room we were in. I set my stuff on a bench that was crammed full of various balls and a croquet set. Pretty cool. On the other hand, I couldn't help but feel it just had this weird sort of Gattaca sense to the place. All those people there at work happily at 7:30 at night. Sure, most of them were on the treadmills in the gym, but still it was slightly spooky. One thing was for sure, I've slid back into my comfort zone in academia. We may not have the neatest toys, but there's a certain feel to an academic campus that I just love. Plus, we've got the cutest squirrels around!
