    I’d like to see the data that shows that these â€Å“young techie[s] who come to San Francisco with nothing more than a suitcase, a computer, a toothbrush and a desire to succeed† actually exist. Seems like a caricature to me…

      His way of describing the influx of mid- to high-salaried engineers that are moving into the city and make up the Twitterati and Zynga-ites. A caricature for sure but these guys are definitely contributing through no fault of theirs, to the close to zero vacancies in SF.

        Following up, Patrick’s first official SmartSpace building in SF, which is prefab, is going up today. Video of yesterday’s stacking of the mods on site: http://youtu.be/fTr01AT87Ts

        I also nabbed some video of the boxes being built in the Zeta factory: http://youtu.be/oQd7yS1rsCs

    And here I was thinking my 600 square foot 1 bedroom was way too tiny. 25% of my current apartment in square footage, I might as well live out of the back of a car.

      I know, seems really small! But when I toured the place i was surprised at how not-small it seemed – guess it was well-designed, you’re not supposed to bring any furniture and very few personal items.

        Guess I’ll have to see it in person to believe it. The only way I can consider downsizing is if I get a Murphy bed, but I have a great fear it will come loose from the wall and crush me as I walk by it. LOL.

      I am thinking these units could use a large hamster wheel for exercise. Maybe it could descend from the ceiling? Possibly, it could provide some energy?
