So I was walking my dog in the neighborhood a few weeks ago, past a cool and hip office on a street a few blocks away. As we walked by and I glanced in, I couldn't help but wonder what those folks were working on. A few days later, I was meeting with a friend for breakfast, talking about cool and hip office spaces. We literally got up from the table and hurried around the corner to that first office. That's when I discovered, well, the following story (that ran in today's Salem News). Curiosity sure can introduce you to some fascinating stuff, even in your own neighborhood . . .
