The Old Adage About Goldfish and the Size of the Bowl [Updated]

Update – January 28, 2005, 1:57 p.m. EST: Fixed some broken links. Enjoy!

Over the past couple of weeks, Tucows has been rearranging its office

space. The office has been expanded dramatically; we’ve taken over a

large, airy second-floor office next door.

Before we got this space, a department’s members could be scattered

about the office; it was much easier to simply give a new hire the

first available desk rather than rearrange a large number of people to

accomodate the hire. It was actually possible to be on the other side

of the office from the rest of your department.

The new space has given us a chance to regroup the departments and

leave each one some empty desks to accomodate new hires. Most

departments get a cluster or aisle of workstations. This has proven to

be a really interesting development for my department, Research and

Innovation, which consists of three people. Boss Ross gets a “boss”

workstation at the end of the aisle, which has left me and Darryl with

an entire aisle of 12 workstations all to ourselves. Rather than let

this lovely space go to waste, we’ve taken over the whole space and

turned it into the next best thing to having a private office.

The ongoing work on our aisle will appear in this photo album.
