More seating-chart ello:
1) This on Kleiner Perkins, via Aaron Timms:
It's important to sit in "the power corridor": Kleiner's trial brief dismisses some of Pao's complaints: "Many of the alleged discriminatory acts involve such minutiae as…Pao's office not being in 'the power corridor' (whatever that means)." Sounds silly, right? But based on managing partner Ted Schlein's testimony, it seems seating arrangements at Kleiner do say a lot about status: Asked why he didn't sit in the back of a conference room to make space at the front table for Pao and other junior partners, he responded, "That's not how the meetings work."
2) This from @marychilds: "in a meeting yday: 'Next to comp, seating is the most important issue on the Street.'"
