Because I love visiting Start-ups in the Valley

 

 

Probably not as cool as my trip to Google but Facebook was still a treat, mostly because they don’t try to be too healthy. Instead their snack areas are stocked with chocolate and their ice cream parlor is like walking into Willy Wonka’s Factory. I could get super fat working in this mini city.

I have a close friend who works on the Farmville team (Zynga) so had the opportunity to come by for a Friday after work happy hour. This place used to be Sega’s stomping grounds – crazy how things change… Farmville is celebrating its 4 year anniversary this month, yes its been around for that long and still going strong. Apparently, there are a lot of bored housewives in the mid west that spend about 10 to 20 cents a day, soap operas are the new Facebook games.

A failed game, but how can a game on Zombies fail?

Of course I had to pose with the Zynga mascot, apparently Zynga was the name of one of the founders’s dogs who had past away.
