Tour Suggestions

  • Start with the basics:
    • Folks like to see the space we inhabit. Everything from our lobbies, kitchens, "play" areas, to where the various groups sit.
    • Make it personal and show people where your team sits + your desk.
    • Explain the background to our conference room names -- Internet memes (3rd floor) + acronyms (2nd floor).
    • Sticker decals on glass separaters (all lifted from Mozilla.com + marketing campaigns)
  • Show off our artifacts - current crowd pleasers include:
    • The World Record certificate (Engagement area)
    • The Firefox Crop Circle planning doc (Engagement area)
    • Dino sculpture (2nd floor lobby)
    • Mitchell's fabric works (3rd Floor lobby + All your bases)
    • Launch posters (scattered about)
    • Trophy case (press awards + fan art)
    • racks of minis in RelEng area of 2nd floor
  • Other awesome stuff:
    • Willow Garage Robots
    • "Dashboards" with tweets, etc
    • Snacks (people are always wow'd)

Swag

  • Visitors should get a drawstring bag w. a few goodies (working on this).
