Spending VC money wisely



Stopped by meebo's new (and still under construction) offices in Mountain View yesterday for a non-work-related visit. Like Google, meebo is all about products that focus on a great user experience - and it's enabled them to carve out a decent niche in a space with nontrivial barriers to adoption.

It doesn't seem to have gone to their heads though:
meebo registered users: 500,000+
meebo office signage cost: $.05 (possibly less)

Wouldn't this have been funny as a mock credit card ad:

Meebo...
Signage: $.99
500,000+ Users: priceless.

he he.

The sign is fine. It's a decent size, it has a very good contrast for sight challenged visitors. It looks like you don't have it too high, so it's just the right height for height challenged or wheelchair bound visitors. It should be transated into Espanol and also have raised Braille though. Tsk tsk. LOL!

Someone could have at least sharpied the two dots beneath the "o". Other than that, it's perfect.

the 'Meebo' sign is alright I believe (as a meebo user) that there should be some way of 'paying' for meebo wether its for 'extra' finctions etc. and that money could be used for lets say in this case a 'sign' but for something so simple it gives off a warm feeling it makes me want to open the door.
