No wonder SL makes it so easy for people to squat on land.

/wonders how long till they get cited.

Or somebody or somedog playing the park steps on those panels.

/pushes baglady shopping cart through park. Oops.

For some reason, I'm reminded of the Upright Citizens Brigade woodsy office skit. There's definitely something to be said for taking advantage of Wi-Fi during a nice weather day.

Actually I read on Facebook that they were busted for not having a tent permit, but managed to escape without a citation.

Since everyone is in shorts and t-shirts I REFUSE to believe that picture was taken in San Fransisco during a summer month.

Ahahahaha, Max!

@Emperor: Generally your assessment is accurate, but San Francisco is currently in one of those rare periods where the temperature is upper 60s/low 70s. But if they stayed out past 7pm, they'd probably get hit by a 20-30 degree temperature drop also typical of SF.

A step up from basing a company in bars and lobbies. I can just picture the executive porta-potty. Great publicity, in a Cory Doctorow only-works-for-him sort of way.


This would not *ever* happen in the tropical humidity of an Eastern Seaboard summer (okay, we've had non-sucky weather for a month and everyone is suspicious).

Being from America's Snarky Coast, and possessing our region's half-smirking, half-envious attitude toward the Bay Area, I'd still prefer a meeting in a bar.

Imagine the agenda at Martinis and Mayhem: taking your money and not getting a damned thing done!

Can't afford space in an office building, eh?

David Nikolic

I wish even my office would have operated like that. In the garden, under the trees, in those couches, on those green grasses. Wow! If I ever happen to set up an office ever, I will set up nothing other than online virtual office so that I could have the ease of earning good money by even working from the comfort of my home with my kids playing in front of me

Emma Tameside

I really didn't quite comprehend the benefits of a virtual office until recently. It took articles like this to really convince me to actually invest in a virtual office opposed to a physical one. I haven't looked back since, it's opened up a much bigger budget to invest in growth.

The setup definitely looks cool up there in San Francisco! Congratulations on making the move to them.
