This virus thing might change things, and specifically cities,
forever.

Are many of you working from home now?

Been back in the lab for a month. (It has way better A/C than home.) ;)

From March 9, still working from home and will be home thru end of 2020.
Being in the (former) epicenter, and employing many product & food safety
experts, the company is very cautious.

I come in to work most days, so I can sit in front of a different
computer, and use my drafting table, and solder once in a while.

Apartment rental prices are down here, from astronomical to merely
absurd. Part of the housing pressure was from the Google busses. If
people work from home, it doesn\'t matter where \"home\" is.

Working from a 2000 sq. ft. office in downtown SF. I think the regular rent is $10,000 per month. My friend\'s office is now open only Tuesday and Thursday; so, i am working there the rest of the week. I am the only one there in the office; so, perfectly safe from virus.

It\'s 50C to 60C here. The computers provide better heating than home.

We are in the ground floor. I heard that ebay moved out of a few floors in our building. Probably more did or in the process of moving out.

You obviously work for 666 Technology or something, if you\'re still
chilly at 60C.

It\'s always around 60F inside the office. I think the building central A/C is still running, of which we have no control. So, we have to warm up with computers.

I have 10 to 20 PCs running and mining crypto in my small corner.

it is perfect if you want your steak medium rare by leaving it on your
desk for a few hours

give it few burnt stripes with the soldering iron and might be all right :)

In Denmark we shut down completely 11th of March, and in my company we went back to work fully mid June, with some people starting mid May

We have the situation under control (so far) since people respected the guidelines and the pullback was strong

We have had about 2000 cases per million people, 6 times lower than the US. I hope it will be under control soon in the US

I did work from my own lab, so no real loss of work efficiency. Just ordered parts to my home address

Cheers

Back to the original issue, i think office density need to go down 3/4 to 4/5, as well as the equivalent public transits. Commercial property tax will go down substantially and parking tickets will cost more than rents. Parking tickets are currently an important revenue source for the city. By the way, i have to protest my $288 parking ticket for red zone outside an empty building.

I bet our giant reflow oven could make a lot of pizzas.

They might not toast properly in nitrogen.

It\'s almost 3pm. It\'s 58F outside and 66F inside, according to the thermostat (currently off). Without the 20 crypto miners (100% CPU cycles), it would be 58F. We are closer to the water than Potrero.

I have done that for most of my life and never understood why people see
a problem with it, at least for engineering. I have longterm clients
(meaning >10 years) that I have never seen in person but sucessfully
completed lots of product designs.

I like my 10 second commute (walking ...).

Bingo! They finally understood it. It seems some didn\'t, at least not in
the past:
