Cold Lunch and New Editors Room

In the EzineArticles lunch room today is cold-cuts of Ham, Turkey and Roast beef…along with fresh fruit.

The new Editors room is getting carpet cleaned today and lights / desks installed Wednesday.

Working within a budget we were able to find a local carpenter to create custom desks for each Associate Editor at about the same price as buying commercial desks from the local office supply store.

The room is wired with gigabit ethernet (thankfully one of our developers is also very handy at pulling Cat5 through the ceiling and walls) and I just won 11 used Samsung 24 button office phones victoriously off eBay at a price of about the same as the cost of one of them brand new.

For fun, our team is creating an EzineArticles logo stencil that will be hand painted in the room along with red/black accents to give it a branding touch of unity, etc. :-)

Great job, Chris! You and all of your editors deserve the best. Good to know that eBay was there to help as well. Enjoy your new room.

Yes, EzineArticles’ team is lucky!
EA is a very nice place!

I would like very much to work in this environment if I could use a rocket to go from Europe to the US instantly.

Wow, I am jealous as, I just finished another 10 articles sitting here at Starbucks with a “Second Frappachino Envy” and paid $5.25 for a fresh sandwhich, which is clearly underperforming compared to the cold-cut layout of lunch meets and cheese and healthy snacks that your editors get there.

I vote EzineArticles one of the top 50 places to work in America and will be submitting my application very soon! – Lance

What … no brisket? Looks like business is moving briskly.

You know Chris, you could write a book on how to make money using the Adsense model. I know I’d buy it.

One of the most important things in a business for productivity and happiness is the lighting. It really makes or breaks an office and there are lots of Research Papers on these facts. Additionally, good lighting while working is very good for your health, which kind of matches the cold-cuts, BTW – any left overs? If so, can you fax them over to me? Now would be good.

This is very nice, Chris!

Good lighting while working is very good for your vision and for your psychic health.
It brings good disposition!

CHRIS said,”Let there be light.”

And there was light.

EzineArticles is equal to thousand suns for me.

Let the LIGHT shine on!
