At the Democratic National Convention? If so, you might want to wander over to the brightly colored stack of shipping containers. There, Google is.

Yes, at the Democratic shindig, Google has set up shop in a very real way. Its impromptu setup is more than cool. The Guardian’s Richard Adams was on site, and snapped a number of pictures for The Next Web. If you’ve never read Richard’s work, his blog is more than worth your time.

TNW awards Google 15 points for the installation. It’s just plain cool.
