New old office with new old roommate

New Office

I’m posting this from a new office. And I love the feeling of a brand new office, when there’s nothing set up but a few desks and chairs (in this case, just temporary fillers while we’re waiting for the real stuff to be delivered), laptop and some post-its with lists of stuff to still organize. To me this short moment has something almost magical – not least because it’s fleeting by definition. After all, a few minutes later you gotta get to work!

So, basics first: Yes, still Berlin. In fact, still in Kreuzberg, and just a few blocks from where I worked before. I love this neighborhood, and was psyched when this opportunity came up.

It’s a new office, but it’s also a bit of a home coming for me in several ways. One, once again I’m subletting from my friends Panorama3000. A few years ago I shared an office with them already, back in 2008/09 or so, and we worked on a bunch of projects together back then. That was in a former P3000 office, though, up in Prenzlauer Berg. It’s a whole different world now: Back then, we heated with coal ovens – old school East Berlin!

I’m also sharing with an old new room mate – Matt Patterson, who I had invited to work from the Third Wave HQ before when he first moved to Berlin, and who joins me here in this new place.

For a few months I had been doing the laptop worker thing, working from a mix of cafés, home and friends’ offices, but also a lot while on the road as I had a crazy travel schedule. That was brilliant for the time being, but now it truly feels good to set up a new HQ. If you’re around, swing by and say hi. There’s coffee, too.
