The 6 Things I've Learned in My First 5 Days

Lot18 really is a startup:
  1. People are crammed into the office. I can reach out and touch five people without moving my desk chair.
  2. Everyone is bleary-eyed and bushy-tailed, especially the Dev team, which just closed out a major relaunch of the site.
  3. The people who have been with the company for four months are considered the veterans.
  4. What was very recently a record-setting month for the company is now a good week.

But it's very different from any startup I've ever seen:
  1. Every day at 5pm, people start drinking wine. Every day. (It took me until Friday to join in.)
  2. There are NO water glasses in the office. Nearly everyone drinks their chilled, filtered water out of an enormous wine glass.
