Project EcoBox: The Next-Generation Open Work Facility for the Mobile 21st Century Workforce
By sunfreyberg on Apr 02, 2007
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,
"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.
