Junko, thank you for the look inside this coffee shop. When I first started, some of us talked about opening a bar across the street for after work. It would have been more like Cheers, but I doubt we would have had a 3D printer or a projector. You would have to write your ideas on the cocktail napkin.
but seriously, I find it interesting (and sweet) engineers in Shanghai seeking for a place to hang out for themselves. Beyond your cubicles, beyond a kitchen of your office, people need to get out...and find the place where they all know you.
Speaking of coffee, i just spoke with Kirk Laney, CEO of ams, and he was describing the color sensor they make that will go in Keurig coffee makers to detect fake Keurig coffee pods. Coffee is serious business.
Sounds like a must see...and I think Silicon Valley needs one too.
Of course we are all well outfitted here. My son now works as a contractor in Google's You Tube HQ in San Bruno where he showed me the polished industrial-strength expresso machine just a few feet from his cube. He's still trying to figure out how to use it.
