Project EcoBox: The Next-Generation Open Work Facility for the Mobile 21st Century Workforce

Over the past 25 years, the April Fools prank has become a time-honored tradition at Sun. This year's small team of pranksters relocated the offices of CEO and President Jonathan Schwartz and CTO and EVP of Research and Development Greg Papadopoulos to a shipping container in the middle of Sun's Menlo Park, California campus.

"Project EcoBox" is a variation on Sun's popular Project Blackbox and has been specifically designed for "C" level executive occupancy, complete with office equipment (solar-powered telephones and Sun Ray thin clients), a loft bed, an eco-friendly toilet, an energy-saving Wolf® 30" Double Easy-Bake rackable convection oven, and a portable patio with hot tub and bistro set. This new Open Work office environment truly demonstrates Sun's commitment to flexible officing.

More information and photos of Project EcoBox are available here. Highlights of Sun's pranks from the past are available here.

Nice. I guess the fact that April 1 fell on Sunday makes these kind of awkward. Google went ahead and did their TiSP press release on Sunday.
