Computer Genius Squatter in AOL building for 2 months until caught.

Eric Simons Computer Genius classconnectEric Simons, a brilliant 20 year old computer genius was hired by Silicon Valley Investors to work on a project Imagine K12 at the AOL Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. When the project was over, Eric was not done and wanted to continue working to perfect his idea of helping teachers to revolutionize education.

Eric Simons Computer Genius classconnectEric had run out of rent money and noticed a lot of empty space and so he decided to move in. He stored his stuff in 2 lockers outside the gym area and caught a few hours sleep at night but worked on the computer the rest of the time. Eric had realized his badge continued to work so he had free access to the building. He would shower in the gym, wash his clothes at the inside Laundromat and eat snacks from the lunch room.  Everything was going alright until the Office Manager found him in the building one night and he was evicted immediately and they took his badge.

Eric has a new company ClassConnect and has gotten $50,000 in start up money for his company and is looking for a larger investor to fund him. Eric Simons is now living in a rented home and there has been no backlash from AOL. He is still allowed to attend meeting for the Imagine K12 program and goes to the lab afterwards but they did take away his badge so he cannot roam around the building.

Simon’s motto is “Save money whenever possible, use all the resources you can and don’t die. Eric reminds me of some other computer genius’ who had a dream about an apple.

                   Not your typical squatter!

Hi Rebecca,

I certainly agree with you. I saw a video he did with CNN Money and he said I am 20 years old and I have nothing to lose. But they could have called the police and arrested him but I am glad they did not. Perhaps he will buy them in a few years.

Hi Barbara-Jo,

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. He was trespassing but certainly has the drive to keep on track to get his business off the ground.

Additional Information

I am a Southern California Realtor and have a wide variety of interests. First of all Real Estate is my real love and focus point but I do have hobbies. I am interested in photography; nature, landscaping, lunar and solar phases, but Birds are my favorites. I also enjoy scrapbooking, blogging, and traveling; beaches, deserts, and mountains. I am also involved in the community as I care about the Inland Empire and making it a better place to live. I write this daily blog composed of nature, real estate news and interesting stories in Southern Califoria and other places across the United States.
