We’re going live. Starting today, live feeds of the South Brunswick, Hong Kong and Singapore coffee bar common areas, as well as the Tokyo canteen and the Lagrange and Federal Way print plants, will be transmitted to New York and publicly displayed on a column by the 1211 bar, helping further connect the global offices by showcasing the daily happenings of these common areas. If you’re in these spaces, you’ll be in the live video feed.

The video will be broadcast across a secure internal network; no one outside the company will be able to access
