The view from StorageMojo

by Robin Harris on Thursday, 28 August, 2008

A global village in the mountains
Did you notice the new header picture this week? No? That’s OK. I enjoy taking the pictures anyway.

But this picture is from StorageMojo’s new global HQ. There is a spacious office – or it will be once the boxes are emptied – and studio space for video production.

I’m now just a short walk to a 7 night a week live music venue. Yes, I’ll be out most nights. Don’t wait up.

And in the morning I can take a hike up to Devil’s Kitchen or up the Cibola Trail.

The StorageMojo take
An amazingly rich lifestyle in a small town 120 miles from Phoenix. When I step outside most nights I can see the Milky Way – a bright moon will wash it out – and much of it is due to the Internet.

The musicians, artists, dancers and occasional blogger who live here don’t have a large enough local market to support themselves. But most are also on the Internet – be it Facebook, MySpace or their own site – with visibility to the larger world.

Truly, for those of us lucky enough to live with broadband access, Marshall McLuhan’s global village is no longer a metaphor. It is where we live.

Courteous comments welcome, of course. Normally I wouldn’t post about this, but people have asked about my view, given all the pictures I’ve published. Now you know.

OK, Robin, you win!!! That has got to be one of the most killer views I’ve ever seen from an office. Enjoy!

Such a lucky Mojo you are Robin,

For sure, I can see the Eiffel Tower from my office windows … but I’m not sure it provides the same feeling. And here, stars don’t never shine.

See you.

Gorgeous. Peaceful. Intriguing.

Sigh. Still, the flat arctic-like environment here in Minnesota builds character. At least that’s what I keep telling myself.

Like Nick said, It’s NOT Wales!

Looks like a great place, the best part is, in a few hundred years we’ll both have ocean front property too!
