I’m still only beginning to catch up from having been gone for two weeks and sick for an additional one, but I thought this was an interesting look behind the scenes at Pixar, paying particular attention to the physical design of the work space. Thanks to Cory Doctorow for pointing this out.

As it was explained to me later, Steve Jobs originally proposed a building with one bathroom, something that would drive foot traffic to a central area all day long. Obviously, they’ve got more than one bathroom in the building, but just standing there and watching as everyone arrived to start their day, it was obvious that Jobs had managed the feat.
