    The building was commissioned back in the ATI days, before AMD bought us. None of the colours really align with vendor colour schemes... they're more like stylized CRT phosphor colours but darkened even more so they didn't look grungy after a couple of days.

    From that link, it sounds like they only distinguish between actual Intel employees, and external workers hired through 3rd parties.

    On the face of it, that seems completely reasonable, although obviously in practice you can see why it looks pretty bad.

    We avoid the free food discrimination problem by not having free food
    That is best way not to to take advantage for anybody, which is disadvantage for other people, so It is Deuce as in tennis..

The upper 3 floors were Red, Green and Blue respectively, but there was some debate about what colour the ground floor (Alpha) carpets should be. They ended up as grey, which I guess was predictable.

    Why there are such colors of badges?
    at Intel campus..
    Blue, green, and pretending to be Saturn.

    To show a difference between the classes within the company...no other reason for different badge colors...

    Doesn't change that the Intel Alphas gets better hookups than Intel Gammas; like it was straight from the book.

    These books were not intended to be instruction manuals.

    Blue badges get free coffee, soda and fruit; green badges have to pay.

    "Alpha children wear grey They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever. I'm really awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They're too stupid to be able…"
    Yeah, fuck you Gammas.

    or they do something like they do at their campus

    Thu 28 Jan 2016 22.25 GMT

    At Intel’s corporate headquarters in Santa Clara, California, the highly paid engineers and developers directly employed by the computer chip company wear blue identification badges.

    Janitors, electricians, gardeners, security guards and cafeteria workers employed by various subcontractors wear green badges.

    It’s an important distinction for Nahima Aguiniga, 34, who works as a cashier and dishwasher at a cafe on the Intel campus. Blue badges get free coffee, soda and fruit; green badges have to pay.

    Maybe people going to AMD keynote will become "green badges"
