Investing in Menlo Park and the Community

Facebook - Vie, 07/07/2017 - 17:00

By John Tenanes, VP Global Facilities and Real Estate

We found a home when we moved to Menlo Park in 2011.We are part of this community, and being here makes it possible for us to work on our mission to bring the world closer together.

That’s why we plan to keep investing in this community. When we first expanded beyond our original campus, we looked no further than across the street. Frank Gehry helped us design that building, which we call MPK20. Our presence has expanded further since then, and we are now planning to redevelop the former Menlo Science & Technology Park which we intend to call Willow Campus.

Working with the community, our goal for the Willow Campus is to create an integrated, mixed-use village that will provide much needed services, housing and transit solutions as well as office space. Part of our vision is to create a neighborhood center that provides long-needed community services. We plan to build 125,000 square feet of new retail space, including a grocery store, pharmacy and additional community-facing retail.

The first official step will be the filing of our plan with Menlo Park in July 2017. We will begin more formal conversations with local government officials and community organizations over the course of the review process, which we expect to last approximately two years. We envision construction will follow in phases, with the first to include the grocery, retail, housing and office completed in early 2021, and subsequent phases will take two years each to complete.

Housing is also critically important to these efforts. We hope to contribute significantly to the housing supply by building 1,500 units of housing on the campus, 15% of which will be offered at below market rates. This added on-site housing should also mitigate traffic impacts from growth. These efforts complement our ongoing work to address the issue, including the Catalyst Housing Fund for affordable housing we established in partnership with community groups to fund affordable housing for our local area. The fund was initiated last year with an initial investment of $18.5 million that we hope will grow.

The region’s failure to continue to invest in our transportation infrastructure alongside growth has led to congestion and delay. Willow Campus will be an opportunity to catalyze regional transit investment by providing planned density sufficient to support new east-west connections and a future transit center. We’re investing tens of millions of dollars to improve US101.

Construction will generate an array of jobs, and we’re planning to help local workers access those opportunities. The site will be developed in two phases designed to bring office, housing and retail online in tandem.

Our hope is to create a physical space that supports our community and builds on our existing programs. We’ve hosted tens of thousands of community members at farmers’ markets and events, and partnered with nonprofits like Rebuilding Together Peninsula to rehabilitate local homes. We’ve also enrolled local high school students from East Palo Alto, Belle Haven and Redwood City in our six-week summer internship program.

This is only the beginning. Going forward, we plan to continue to work closely with local leaders and community members to ensure Facebook’s presence is a benefit to the community. It’s one we’re lucky to call home.

Our design partner in imagining the campus is OMA New York. We have worked with them to prepare a video describing our vision and hope for integrating more closely with our community.

The changing face of the hybrid cloud

Open Source - Vie, 07/07/2017 - 09:02

Depending upon the event you use to start the clock, cloud computing is only a little more than 10 years old. Some terms and concepts around cloud computing that we take for granted today are newer still. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) document that defined now-familiar cloud terminology—such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)—was only published in 2011, although it widely circulated in draft form for a while before that.

Dynamic tracing in Linux user and kernel space

Open Source - Jue, 07/06/2017 - 09:01

Have you ever been in a situation where you realize that you didn't insert debug print at a few points in your code, so now you won't know if your CPU hits a particular line of code for execution until you recompile the code with debug statements? Don't worry, there's an easier solution. Basically, you need to insert dynamic probe points at different locations of your source code assembly instructions.

No coding required: Node-RED on a Raspberry Pi

Open Source - Mié, 07/05/2017 - 09:02

Node-RED is a programming tool that lets you quickly connect hardware devices using a browser-based editor. It comes with a wide range of nodes that can be used to build flows in a drag-and-drop manner, significantly reducing your development time. Node-RED is installed with Raspian Jesse for Raspberry Pi, and there is also an option to download Node-RED separately.

7 ways to make better user-facing software

Open Source - Mié, 07/05/2017 - 09:00

Open source has been amazingly good at solving two sets of issues: 1) infrastructure and 2) developer tools. This is because those developers and users are basically the same people—the developer is an "insider" to the problem, understands it well, and is motivated to solve it.

Why can't we have the Internet of Nice Things? A home automation primer

Open Source - Mar, 07/04/2017 - 09:02

Off-the-shelf, consumer home automation has fallen into a pretty standard pattern. You have a smart device (like a lightbulb or door lock) that talks to some kind of hub that you put on your network. It communicates with a cloud service owned by the device vendor, and you interface with that service via a mobile app. This provides an easy out-of-the-box experience and lets the vendor iterate on its service both in the cloud and on mobile; however, this model has a lot of weaknesses and is extremely limiting with what it can do.

Brewing beer with Linux, Python, and Raspberry Pi

Open Source - Lun, 07/03/2017 - 09:02

I started brewing my own beer more than 10 years ago. Like most homebrewers, I started in my kitchen making extract-based brews. This required the least equipment and still resulted in really tasty beer. Eventually I stepped up to all-grain brewing using a big cooler for my mash tun. For several years I was brewing 5 gallons at a time, but brewing 10 gallons takes the same amount of time and effort (and only requires slightly larger equipment), so a few years ago I stepped it up.
