I do projects at UC Berkeley's graduate lab the Berkeley Institute of Design (BiD) with friends. It's an amazing space to work in and I'm lucky to have access. An extension cord is never more than four feet about your head, our giant conference table is also six individual work spaces, I designed a notebook next to someone programming a giant touch surface table. The food co-op is right around the corner, by the workshop. Most importantly, friends are all around me.
