Even as the holidays are approaching, there’s no slowing down to what Nick Longo and his team are doing, as they bring Geekdom, the new collaborative workspace in the heart of downtown San Antonio to life.
There is something very special, not only Geekdom itself as a faclity, but the very cool building it’s in.
Rooted In Texan Culture
From afar, you can see the tallest and most majestic office building in town – The Weston Centre.
When you mosey into the lobby, there’s lots of real Texas art and furniture you’re not gonna see in New York City or Silicon Valley. You see motifs of cowboys out on the range, exploring new worlds, creating something special.
Roaming around the building, you see lawyers, bankers, and bidness people.
And then you see the new generation of builders, makers, and creatives on their way up to the 11th floor of Geekdom, with aspirations to do something really new.
Fit For A Geek
When you arrive to the 11th floor of Geekdom, you know you’re in very special place. Community members are starting to move in, people are starting to hang out in the hallways, and connecting in new ways.
The furniture, the layout, the open offices, the private offices, the couches, the hot desks, the collaborative workspaces all say one thing: come here and make something happen and do something meaningful.
Into the Cloud
If art precedes life, then the artwork downstairs in the Weston Centre is quite telling of something else coming in January 2012.
Yup, only in San Antonio, where sparks will fly.
Come See Us
Aside from being surrounded by really smart people, everyone here is really nice.
So if your travels are bringing you to Texas, come on down to San Antonio and walk the halls and roam the prairie of Geekdom.
You might discover the next big thing, some elements of code you were missing, or just a different way to look at what could be next by tapping into, and collaborating with a collective bunch of brains.
Come meet us, let us take you out for lunch for great Mexican, BarBQue or some down to earth Chicken Fried Steak. You’re not gonna find this type of hot / haute cuisine anywhere in Manhattan or the Bay Area.
So don’t be a stranger
We’re a friendly bunch.
There’s TopoChico downstairs, and freeWiFi for you and the kids.
It’s all here on the 11th floor over at Geekdom.
