This chair is worth 2 playstations…

I was reading this blog entry on chairs (did I mention the huge number of blogs in my Google Reader?) and was shocked to see a picture of the exact chair I was sitting on.

Taking a closer look, I realized that indeed, I was sitting in a $979 chair. I think the best proof of how great this chair is in the fact that I never thought about my chair. This is in sharp contrast to the days of cursing at my crappy chair in Japan which didn’t even have back support beyond the first 5 lower vertebrae.

Not bad for working as a software developer for Library services. I also have a dual-monitor Dell dev box and a MacBook Pro for work. We’re located in Fremont, the center of the universe, a great location in Seattle. The atmosphere is really great and laid back as well. We’re currently really hurting for Database and QA resources so if you’re interested, take a look at the list of our open positions.

  1. It’s not comfortable like a love seat. Like I said, you hardly notice the chair at all which means it’s great for sitting and working long hours.

  2. Hello, Tae Kim!

    I heard about your excellent Japanese grammar site from a university student who was also using my own ‘how to learn Kanji’ site.

    anyway, I’m also planning on writing a Japanese textbook (based on the website), and so that’s why I’m writing you! I’d like to interview you for my Tokyo-related webpage.

    For the past 5 years, I’ve been doing a Tokyo underground-related website.

    Mostly it’s punk, fetish, and stuff, but sometimes I interview people. (for example, a phd. physicist who makes mathematical models of black holes, or a professional dancer at the Hello Kitty theme park).

    If possible I’d like to do an email interview with you as well! Not just to encourage people to buy your book, but to find out why you are interested in japanese, your thoughts on self-publishing, the problems of regular Japanese curriculua, and how you think the teaching of japanese could be improved (both by technology and by common-sense).

    I guess that’s enough suprises for one e-mail, so goodbye for now.

    Steven
