Come In

Congrats! You have found the Foundry.

Palo Alto Parking

Remember residents: You can only park in the Coral Zone for three hours.


Nothing says neighbor like someone with cash to invest.

Room to Move

Insert your startup here! While there are still empty benches.


See, it's not a developer lab. It's a human foosball game.


AT&T CTO John Donovan addresses the crowd, telling them that their exhaling is ruining the Platinum LEED certification of the Foundry building.


AT&T CTO John Donovan and Ericsson's Hakan Eriksson (no relation) decide how to divvy up the options they'll get from startups. Oh, we're kidding. Relax.

Telepresence, Anyone?

Or maybe the bridge of the Enterprise?


Finger-mice that look like Angry Birds characters. Look for them in Q1 2012.

Health Watch

"With this app, which is connected to these pulse monitors, when you fall over we can send someone to pick you up."

Weigh In

Sure, go ahead. Step on the scale. I swear I won't post your weight to the Internet.

The Doom Rooms

Apparently the "green" room is for deals about to be funded. The "red" room ... well, do you have to ask?


Smells like team meeting.


These apps will have to do until some of those developers get in here and let us do something other than finger painting.

Old School

Surprisingly this switch is still in use. This is why your iPhone is slow. Again, kidding.

Old School, Part II

Yes, it works. But what are these things you call "dimes"?


Call it the first day "nobody's stocked the fridge" blues. But really -- what else do developers need other than a case of Rockstar?


Juniper and Cisco, side by side in the wiring closet. Collaboration, indeed.


Jawbone's upcoming health-monitoring wristband thingy. Which you will probably lose the first time you wear it to the health club.

Meta TV

The ubiquitous U-verse demo. And the ubiquitous TV crew filming it. TV of TV!

Wait. Something Important Is Happening

Now you're talking Light Reading's language. If they show Tom and Jerry we're not leaving.

You Don't Have to Go Home, But ...

What do you mean there's no "after-party?" What part of Silicon Valley don't you understand?
