A small camera, hidden amongst the banks of computers and sensors in the lab recorded the idle words of the second most senior scientist of Dark Side Experimental, and transmitted the video to a secret location in the company's data stream, where Aldric would later pick it up and view it. He liked to keep tabs on the people who worked on his projects with him, and he was happy to not let any of them know about it. He knew that people did not work well when they knew they were being monitored, neither did they speak so freely.
Yeah, I'm a writer. As a writer, I should love all things coffee house, especially Starbucks, where I can sit and show everyone that I'm a writer, but to be honest, I don't. Now I have nothing against writers who do their work in a coffe house, except when they're not buying coffee and just sucking up space that paying customers could use. Personally I think there should be a drink per hour minimum, just to be fair. Oh, and for God's sake TIP.
All of this came out from a conversation my wife and I had this morning while listening to the DJ's on the radio talking about Starbuck's serving beer and wine in certain locations. I hold no grudge against Starbuck''s or their uber-succesful marketing scheme, but I do not care for their coffee or the space wasters that are too often found within.
