‘Dilbert’ on display
In 1989, creator Scott Adams launched his satirical workplace comic strip, Dilbert. Its genesis can be traced to Adams’ office at the Pacific Bell Telephone Company in San Ramon, California. Today, this building is part of Bishop Ranch, a 1.8 million-square-foot campus owned by Sunset Development Company.
Dilbert has come full circle and returned to its place of origin. Permissions Manager Raegan Carmona worked with Bishop Ranch to install a 60-cartoon Dilbert exhibit in a 90-foot-long passageway.
