What happens when engineers are paired with beer, late nights and gallons of paint? Apparently they might go to their headquarters' roof and paint a giant QR code that can be seen from the air.
At least that's what happened at Facebook during its "Space Hackathon," a mini-celebration for the last of its employees moving into the new Menlo Park headquarters. Employees were encouraged to make their space their own, according to Mark Pike, an engineer from Facebook.
(Mark Zuckerberg's) post encouraged everybody to decorate the new space to make it our own—tag the walls with spray paint, hang cool posters, and hack the building with some patented Facebook personality. But a few of us interpreted the call to action a bit too literally. We decided that we wanted our "space hack" to actually be visible from space.
