It’s a boy! Adam Gabriel Bennis

Hi All,

Haven’t been spending much time on Locus Workspace as the last 3 weeks have been devoted to my wife and family. We have a new baby boy, Adam Gabriel Bennis, 4.35 kilos, b. May 28, 2010. Lea was in the hospital save 2 days from May 18th, and just returned from the hospital on Wednesday (5 days ago). Adam is doing great and his big brother is excited that he’s better at almost everything than his little brother.

For example, when changing Adam’s diaper I pointed out to Daniel that Adam had a little butt. “But Daddy, I have a big butt,” Daniel said proudly. Then he pointed at his butt, “Daddy, Daddy, look, I have a big butt!” Just one of the many perks of being an older brother.


First day

See my impoverished description of the first day on the Locus Facebook page ( You don’t need to use facebook to see the page. And if you have a suggestion for how to seamlessly manage a blog and a Facebook page at the same time without being completely repetitive, let me know. Referring people back and forth for each update doesn’t seem ideal.


Opening the doors in two days and still a million things to do.
Last week I lucked out. I was about an hour away from driving to Ikea to buy as many desks, chairs, filing cabinets, book shelves, etc., that I thought would make sense for the space when a friend of a friend of a friend called to say his office was going out of business and to see if I needed office supplies. Turned out to be enough and then some to furnish the entire space, and to solve some challenges with respect to providing personal storage. High quality everything, including many things I wouldn’t have invested in for some time (like a very quality laserjet printer, fax, copier, scanner; nice security camera system; amazing bookshelves with locking storage space, locking, rolling filing cabinets for every desk, etc.). This is the second great stroke of luck after finding the space itself, which couldn’t be better situated.
