Today is Bike to Work Day in San Francisco. Dozens of Rackers in Rackspace’s San Francisco office participated. Here, I look at how cycling to work has become a key component of Racker SF culture (and some of the struggles that come with riding a bike to work in a major city).
On Thursday, December 1st Rackspace celebrated the grand opening of its San Francisco office and the Space Cowboys from the Rackspace Startup Program were there to witness. It was a grand affair hosted by Robert Scoble, technology evangelist, and Chief Learning Officer at Rackspace Hosting, who is building a new community of people fanatical about tech startups. Special guests at the event included GoPro, Loggly, New Relic, Foodspotting and the Honorable Ed Lee who shared his thoughts about the San Francisco tech community and proclaimed it “Rackspace Day,” honoring the company’s commitment to investing its resources in his city.
