Well, as crazy as it sounds, we decided to move our office the same week we were launching Plaxo 3.0!
The new office is really great. It’s bigger, with lots of room to for now and for future growth. It’s all ours, not just a floor of a shared multi-story complex. And it’s not next door to Google, so we don’t have to fret about when they will buy the building!
There’s a lot of excitement at Plaxo these days, with a totally new version of the service, rave reviews from the press, a very interesting jump in user growth, and a new office. Why, it practically feels like a new company.
Of course, if you know people here, and you use Plaxo, you already know that our new address if 203 Ravendale, Mountain View, because your smart address book would have already been updated — automatically and quietly. (Now, if only I can figure out how to get the address and logo updated on this blog!)
Here are a few shots I took on Friday…
The space has lots of natural light pouring in from the sides.
There’s plenty of room for everyone — and lots of unused space, ready for future growth — or parties!
There are plenty of seating options, ranging from the zebra bench, to the big blue ball (that’s Cam’s choice), to the more conventional office chairs.
And what Web 2.0 office would be complete without an electric scooter to accelerate the pace of collaboration? I’m sure it will lead to a hilarious mashup in meat-space at some point!
