A little late posting this one. This was a really rainy week, so hard to get much done.
An interesting tidbit about the NeXT corporate offices:
The architectural centerpiece was a “floating” staircase with no visible supports
I’d be curious to know if this had any influence on the glass staircases used in the modern-day Apple stores such as the 5th Ave store in New York. Perhaps Mr. Jobs was fond of those stairs when he was at NeXT.
Update [8/4/2007 @ 10:30 AM EST]: Fake Steve Jobs says someone did get fired for this. He decided who by pulling a name out of a hat. Justice has been served.
