The Seattle startup community is full of business-minded entreprenerds (totally just coined that just now and told the whole office), by and large people that I share very little with, much as I love working at startups.
Even so. I’m a huge fan of “cheat sheets” and life guides and such - anything that takes disconnected information and puts the pieces together, so I was really impressed when I saw this infographic, I assume commissioned by Startup Seattle (a venture I share a coworking office with).
Disconnected as I am from profit-motivated ventures, I do get some pride by being a part of a really awesome community that revels in youth, technology and new ideas (and a bunch of other Seattle-esque qualities like outdoorsiness, health and eerily efficient ways to stay sane while working 70 hour weeks). Charming.
Gee, I was just thinking about this. #alwaysthinkingaboutthis
As if programmers don’t have enough health problems from sitting 8 - 12 hours per day, then our offices get stacked with only the worst of capitalism’s snacky children.
I hate to be a food snob (I’m lying) but seriously, they could have ordered a subscription of fresh fruit or something. To be fair, I can’t eat anything in that pile because of food allergies and an intolerance to sugar, but even if I could, I wouldn’t - pretty much all of it fails the “ingredients I have in my pantry” test and probably all of it we’ll find gives us cancer. Yup. I went there.
