Today, I had a chance to visit the head office of 500px.com. This is through a Meetup Group and although I thought it would be testing their new products, it was mostly an interview for market research, which I really enjoyed, and had fun. There were 3 people interviewing me. I forget their names, but they were really nice!

But what I really liked was their office. Very cool environment with all young people, in a very nice area of downtown Toronto. Reminded me of the movie about Google, called The Internship, but I didn’t see anyone who reminded me of Owen Wilson.

As I was sitting there in the waiting area, this is what was on the coffee table. (click on photo to zoom)

Also in the waiting area, was the bicycle parking area. Kinda neat!

Here’s a view of the office from the waiting area… very casual. Notice the sign. They have these inspirational signs all over the place.

Also, in the waiting area, was the firearm drop-off area. Balance balls all over the place, as well.

Also, in the waiting area was a shipment of wine and beer. I think they were having a big party. I was hoping to get invited, but no such luck. Anyway, I hope to start using 500px a little more often now.
