Working in a virtual company




A few days in the job for MySQL and still, even though I can't say I have mastered the tasks at hand (too much to get used to!) I tasted the feeling of working with perople living in different time zones.
To make this feeling more real, I went to a Chinese shop a few blocks down my street and I bought six cheap clocks. I know that I could use the net but the tangible clocks give me a sense of being in a "real office"!

I know when I started with an internet startup about 4 years ago, I had to deal with people in 3 continents and 6 timezones, I went out and purchased 5 wall clocks. The problem was they were analog clocks, and after setting them up on one wall I found the ticking all too loud. I then had to go by 5 digital wall clocks.

Glad to see you started the right way.
