The Writing on the Wall

Another round of construction started here recently in the Mountain View office.  They’re trying really hard to keep the dust and disruption to a minimum so they hung plastic sheeting over doorways, and taped plastic over the carpets in the corridors – its even inside the elevators.

Its funny how quickly you can get used to working in what feels like the set of a bad SciFi movie! However, while swiping my ID card on the way back to my desk, the following made me stop, double-take and then start carefully looking around me.

“Demo: Not now”

To be clear, in this context:

demo != demonstration
demo == demolition

Turns out, the entire corridor I was standing in was going to disappear… just not now.
