Before the holidays, I visited Alysha at HP Labs. Her building is home to Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard's corporate offices, which are kept in their original state for visitors to see.

The offices are quintessentially modernist, and huge. There is even a little Japanese garden outside sliding doors. The furniture and linoleum floors took me back to 60's-style bank interiors I saw as a little kid, doing errands with my mom. As did this wood paneling and wall clock.

The offices are open for viewing by the public I think; there were some Japanese tourists viewing them when I was there. They're a great addition to a tour of Silicon Valley fabulousness and geekery.

Now I know where to do my photoshoot to enter the Mad Men casting call!
