Searching for a State of Zen
As a part of the recent renovations to Barkley’s headquarters in KC, two smallish rooms were set aside on the fourth floor. These rooms, known as the zen rooms, serve as a place to focus, meditate, or nap. Just flip the switch for the ‘occupied’ light, pull the blinds, and say ‘om’. The only problem: it was impossible to know if there’s an available room without going going up to the fourth floor and checking yourself. We at Moonshot have a personal vendetta against unnecessary physical activity, so we got to work.
Our solution: make a Twitter bot, @CanIZen, that tweets the current status of the rooms, accurate to the minute. The account only shows one tweet at a time. Very zen, right? The next time you need to take a break, just check Twitter. No more unnecessary cardio.
