As part of the ongoing “Cubicle Spy” series here at Mashable, we’re taking a look inside the coolest, quirkiest, and most gadget-laden offices of people who work with social media.
For our second peek into the cube, we scoped out the office of Steve Rubel, senior vice president and director of insights for Edelman Digital, a division of Edelman — the world’s largest independent PR firm.
