High-tech companies are required to have cool offices. It’s a law. Or, in the case of Silicon Valley companies, perhaps more accurately described as a perversion of Moore’s Law, whereby the number of “awesome” offices a meteoric company can have doubles approximately every two years. Google even has a cool algorithmic-sounding name for its headquarters in Mountain View, California—The Googleplex.
The campus has all the requisite goodies every tech employee needs: a gym with swimming pools (please note the plural), a replica of a dinosaur skeleton (a real one, skeleton that is, would be too ostentatious, don’t you think), multiple cafeterias with free food (so what, every tech company has them), and solar panels (after all, they do consume a lot of power). Enjoy the following world tour of Google’s “awesome,” “outrageous,” “cool” offices.
