Joel Spolsky, Stack Exchange CEO and Co-Founder, Talks at Factual on How to Have Nice Things

Friday afternoons are a special time at Factual, not just because it’s getting close to the weekend. Each Friday, the company provides a catered lunch in our HQ office in Los Angeles (at our satellite offices, teams go out together for a sponsored lunch). While the entire office eats and socializes (which in and of itself is great), we have someone give a presentation which is webcast live and also recorded and later distributed for the benefit of those who cannot be present. These “Friday Lunch Talks” are given by both Factual employees and guest speakers, on a wide range of topics – individual projects, summer intern final presentations, updates on our weekly employee basketball game, and chats with successful entrepreneurs, developers, and data lovers.
