    It knows where you live. It knows what car you drive. It knows who you’re meeting with today and how much sugar you take in your coffee. (At least it will, after the next software update.) This is the Edge, and it’s quite possibly the smartest office space ever constructed.

    A day at the Edge in Amsterdam starts with a smartphone app developed with the building’s main tenant, consulting firm Deloitte. From the minute you wake up, you’re connected. The app checks your schedule, and the building recognizes your car when you arrive and directs you to a parking spot.

    Then the app finds you a desk. Because at the Edge, you don’t have one. No one does. Workspaces are based on your schedule: sitting desk, standing desk, work booth, meeting room, balcony seat, or “concentration room.” Wherever you go, the app knows your preferences for light and temperature, and it tweaks the environment accordingly.

    Click the link to see photos. I can't embed what's on there for some reason. Great photos and write-up.

    Anyone with a basic interest in architecture or technology would find this a fascinating read.

    Since you live an empty life and don't care about anything or know anything, I'm not surprised you don't care.

    How's life in Ohio, by the way? You fat, bald, old, retarded faggot.

    Some members here are some of the smartest and most interesting people I've come across on internet forums. Cool shit gets posted here all the time.

    Then again, you miss all that because you're busy with dumb shit, just like your entire life.

    Why don't you make another song based on forum feuds, or make another phony thread about something that never happened?

    Your shtick is old and tired.

    No one likes you.

    No one believes you're actually from Oslo.

    You even fail at being a troll here because people just laugh at you and don't take anything seriously you post here.

    Why do you even bother being here?

    If all the negativity and abuse you receive here doesn't drive you away, your real life must really suck shit.

    I feel sorry for people like you on some level, but then again I don't, because you're completely and utterly unlikable.
