I’ve "lived" in Intel’s Jones Farm 3 (JF3) building ever since I started working here in 1999. Almost 10 years in the same building! That’s included time as a "green badge" contractor, a "blue badge" full blown Intel employee (since 2000), time in the Localization group, the IT group, and now, in the software group (Intel Software Network).
In a couple of weeks, our whole group is moving over in to the new cubes/space in JF1 – the "Workplace of the Future". But since I’m leaving tomorrow for SXSW, I won’t be here next week when everyone else is packing up and getting ready to move. So I did it this week.
Took a LOT of stuff home (mostly my own personal audio equipment that I had brought in over the years). threw a LOT of stuff away (OK, recycled, of course), and got everything I want to keep with me in the new area down to two boxes. Plus my 24" LCD and laptop stand. There’s very little storage space in the new cubes, so I’m not sure where I’m going to put everything (especially my video and audio gear), but we’ll work that out.
I’ll be at SXSW until next Wednesday, then we have a two day team Face to Face meeting Thursday and Friday. First day in the new cube is March 17 – St. Patrick’s Day – the following Monday. I can’t wait.
It will be the first time I’ve "lived" outside of JF3. Quite a big change! 🙂
