Bryce spends most of his time in the semi-secret R&D labs on the 13th floor of Network 23's massive tower headquarters. There, he works on a variety of projects both for his employers and his own quest for knowledge. Television screens show mostly whatever Net23's playing at the time, and occasionally some of the offerings of Big Time TV, a pirate station operated out of a big pink bus by a couple of acquaintances that tended to show mostly old Sex Pistols music videos and the occasional badly-dubbed Kung Fu action flick.

Some of the systems are tasked specifically with monitoring the interface point between his world's networks and the Multiversal Nexus. It was both strange and yet somehow fitting that it was in the realm of computers and televisions that this world could contact others, rather than any direct physical location.

Having been, as far as he could find, the only person with the exception of Max Headroom to find the interface point, he'd worked some time ago to secure it heavily, locking it down so that he had denial authority on any attempts to cross in either direction -- again, with the exception of Max, whose unique computerized nature made him difficult for even Bryce to police. Thus, visitors weren't welcome unless he allowed it, but a Vid-Phone link remained open so that anyone who wanted to could call him to talk.
