Periodic tables are all the rage:
Narrative Science: The Periodic Table of Artifical Intelligence
KA Connect Conference
Most of my blog posts are for Autodesk customers, typically to make them aware of a free technology preview that they can try and provide feedback on. This feedback determines if the technology graduates to the next step or is retired for the time being. In today's case, this post is for Autodesk employees. Our San Francisco presence initially started on Floor 5 of the Landmark Building at One Market. We then expanded to floors 2 and 4 in that building. We have since expanded to other buildings.
Here is a periodic table of reservable conference rooms in San Francisco.
I like how our Facilities department has numbered the rooms using a convention. The first digit indicates the building:
- 1 = Landmark Building
- 2 = Steuart Tower
- 3 = Spear Tower
- 9 = Pier 9
The second digit indicates the floor:
- 1 - first
- 2 = second
- 3 = third
- 4 = fourth
- 5 = fifth
You can see that the naming employs a variety of conventions:
- Landmark Building
- Floor 2 - Old world scientists such as Brahmagupta, Euclid, and Copernicus
- Floor 4 - New world scientists such as Heisenberg and von Braun
- Floor 5 - Bodies of water such as Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf of Mexico.
- Spear Tower
- Steuart Tower
- Floor 2 - Scientists like Darwin, Salk, and Skinner
- Floor 3 - Scientists like Leakey and Montessori
- Floor 4 - Scientists like Hawking, Oppenheimer, and Pasteur
- Pier 9
With this information, employees can determine where to head for their next meeting without popping up DWF files of our office floor plans.
