We’re Moving to 576 Natoma!

It’s only two blocks from our current office in SOMA, San Francisco, but after three years at our current awesome space, we finally have to move. Luckily we found a sweet 4,000sq ft space close by that will be our very own whole building, with room for workshops, events, and our rocking team of six UX researchers, designers, cognitive scientists, artists, and rappers. We just signed the lease and will be all moved in by the new year. In addition, we’ll be sharing the space with our new developer homies at Exygy.

Web and Flow: A Short History of the Interwebnetz in SF

They say that the only industries that made money after the Gold Rush were shovels and blue jeans. In the last fifteen-or-so years, SF has seen another rush, this time to the Internet; so what will be the real cashmaker this time around? Our bet’s on iPhones and skinny jeans. Anyway, we’re working on a stop-motion video timeline of Web companies in SF. We could really use your help making sure we get the history right, so please check out our list and add any web companies we’ve forgot or messed up as a comment. One rule – the company has to still be around. So like Flickr counts, but maybe not Pets.com. And as Dan Harrelson pointed out, we will consider companies that enable the web also, in addition to startups and agencies. Anyone all up on the net.
