Lots of Security
Before I begin talking about VIA's Taiwan offices you must understand that a tech company located in Taiwan doesn't necessarily look the same as a tech company located in California. Beautiful landscapes, shiny new buildings and lots of flowers are not commonplace but it's what's inside VIA that is most interesting.
If you ever walk into one of Intel's buildings in Santa Clara or AMD's headquarters in Austin, at the bare minimum you have a security guard that makes you sign in. Strolling into VIA's building was as easily said as done; no sign-ins, no metal detectors, nothing.
A group of editors just strolled into VIA's offices. The person closest to the camera is Mike Magee of the Inquirer.
Immediately after entering VIA's Taipei offices we went to a large meeting room where we went over some of VIA's future product plans.
