MarkOnBoat SAS Institute tour? (128 comments)

I can arrange a tour of the 300+ acre SAS Institute headquarters here in Cary, NC if you would like. It's beautiful - and SAS was Fortune's #1 best place to work in the USA two years in a row - last year and this. I think it's a cool place to work! http://www.sas.com/company/

"Smart" Parking Meters Considered Dumb

MarkOnBoat Park by Phone (863 comments)

The town of Wrightsville Beach, NC uses regular parking meters. In additon to using coins, each meter has a unique serial numbered clearly marked, and you can pay for your parking using your cell phone. You have to sign up online - I managed to sign up via my BlackBerry for the first use. It's really convenient and best of all - you can "feed the meter" via cell phone without returning to your car. http://www.park-by-phone.com/

MarkOnBoat (900698) writes "Though SAS founder Jim Goodnight is a billionaire, he's willing to keep SAS private to protect his employee's jobs. As one reader commentd "It's nice to hear a milti-billionare essentially say 'I have enough money, and I don't need to sacrifice my employees so I can buy 9 more yachts and a baseball team.'"
