This is the first post to the Parking Lot Indicator group.

 

Here's the first message:

 

My uncle was a guru on wall street when I asked him where I should invest my paper route money. He said to visit the parking lots of Silicon Valley companies during the weekend. If the parking lot was full, there was a good chance they were close to a breakthrough or release.

 

Now that's a lot of biking around to base a portfolio strategy.

 

But with enough mobloggers, a panopticon of performance may be a great leading indicator.

 

Of course, times have changed not just to make it possible for this kind of financial citizens media. People can work anywhere now, especially at home on the weekend. But lets see what patterns reveal themselves.

 

And try not to start trouble with parking lot security guards. Maybe buy them a hamburger and get them to say cheese.

About 1/5th full, the second row was full almost to the far side of the lot. Must be making up for that ski weekend.

Looks like new ventures are hot right now. Maybe all those people who aren't in the parking lots at the big companies are at home in their garages working on the Next Big Thing(tm).

Granted, 9:30 is pretty late, so this is a pretty good showing -- 5 cars in this shot (the parking lot is pretty big). And of course I was just leaving a meeting with 4 other people.

idnt tell, nor make a fuss,But winked at Omer down the road, And e winked back—the same as us ! We shall conclude our extracts with the Envoiwhich ends the volume :When Earths last picture is painted, and the tubes are twisted and dried,When the oldest colors have faded, and the youngest critic has died,We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need it—lie down for an xon or two,Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall set us to work anew ! And those that were good shall be happy ; they shall sit in a golden chair ;They shall splash at a ten-league canvas with brushes of comets* hair ;They shall find real saints to draw from—Magdalene, Peter, and Paul;They shall work for an age at a sitting and never be tired at all! And only the Master shall praise us, and only the Master shall blame;And no one shall work for money, and no one shall work for fame;But each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,Shall draw the Thing as he sees it for the God of Things as They Are 1
