+--| My first day at EFF |----------------------------------------------------+
|                                                                             |
| Today was my first day at Electronic Frontier Foundation - below is a       |
| picture of my office.  It may not seem like much of an office (I need to    |
| work on personalising it!) but it's been a while since I've had my own      |
| office at all, so I'm glad to call it home.  It has a crazy sort of         |
| electric desk that you can raise up to standing height, and an              |
| alien-shaped iPhone speaker that makes farting noises (actually I think     |
| someone left that in here by mistake, but I'm not giving it back now).      |
|                                                                             |
| EFF is in a three (soon to be five) floor, recently renovated building in   |
| a slightly-dodgy area of urban San Francisco.  It may not be the            |
| Googleplex, but is still rather amazing.  On my floor there is a bookcase   |
| with books and DVDs (including Doctor Who), and a social area with a        |
| foosball table, though I am yet to locate the coffee and tea.               |
|                                                                             |
| Elsewhere from the basement up to the roof are other amazing things: an     |
| electric car charging station (so now I just need an electric car to go     |
| with it), a massage room, a stairwell with wall murals, a bicycle lockup    |
| complete with repair station, a gym, a fully equipped kitchen with cheap    |
| lunches in the vending machines, gender-neutral bathrooms and a heated      |
| patio.                                                                      |
|                                                                             |
| Today has been full of meetings, and I'm still wrapping my head around      |
| things, so I can't say much more yet about what I'm doing at work, but      |
| doubtless I will be blogging about some of it soon on the EFF Deeplinks     |
| blog, which you can check out at EFF's website at https://eff.org. And if   |
| anyone in San Francisco wants to drop in for a visit, dial my extension     |
| number 161 at the front gate!                                               |
|                                                                             |
| PS. Sorry about the sideways photo on my microblog; StatusNet doesn't know  |
|     about rotating images based on the EXIF data.                           |
|                                                                             |
