We had had our usual weekly Engineering Meeting yesterday. Some slides, a couple of charts, some spreadsheet pages, and a bunch of folks arguing. Nothing exciting, although it was pretty cool for random attendees to change the slides and spreadsheet in real time, and to put post-its on them.

As usual, our weekly meeting was in-world. No one commented about the technology. No one commented about the fact that the meeting was lead by a manager away at MIT, some engineers were in Maryland and Oregon, and some folks were at home saving gas rather than in the office. Boring.

Pretty cool, no?

    Sweet! Have any problems with dress code? Any anteaters or aliens attend? According to Sushi K from Neal Stephenson’s “Snow Crash”,
    “My hair is big as a galaxy
    Cause I attain greater technology.”

    Funny you should ask. It did turn out that some mucky-mucks dropped by, being conducted on a tour of our virtual offices. Kind of the same thing. Something like Mr. Lee’s offices maybe?

    We’re not at the point of having gargoyles yet, though.
