I just got back from inspecting the new Fog Creek Office, a sunny loft in the shmatta district, with the architect. It’s going to make a really nice office when we’re finished building it out, with private offices, a living room area, kitchenette, and, budget permitting, a pool table and plasma TV. Here’s what I told the architect:

  • private windowed offices are non-negotiable
  • we need three times as many power outlets as anyone would think. I’m sick of power strips. I have ten things plugged in right at my desk. I specified 4 outlets every foot, is that absurd?
  • I want to be able to pull my own lan, telephone, fiber, and cable TV wires. Even if they’re exposed.
