[geek] It's cyberpunk Friday!

For whatever reason, that's the theme today. Not that anyone should be surprised by this, but yes - I am a geek. Moving on... Mitch Ratcliffe points out something I'd missed in the news about Google's new campus: it's an arcology. Kinda creepy... Though honestly, I can't say I'm too surprised - the way housing prices are soaring in the Seattle area, even on the Eastside (the formerly 'cheaper' part of town), it's kind of surprising that Microsoft hasn't explored doing this. Workers who don't have to commute for hours are going to be better workers. And there's a long (if not entirely spotless) history of company towns.
