My Workspace

Web Worker Daily asks us to share pics of our workspaces. Okay, I’m game. Some time ago I simplified my work style. I got rid of the servers, the big desktop machines, the 5.1 stereo components, and the multiple display setups. I got rid of the big eight foot long desk. I now have two laptops and two small workspaces. The first is in a corner of my bedroom. This is my compact home office. I’m a bit of an organization freak, so I have storage boxes for everything. A magnetic bulletin board keeps track of the last few bits of paper correspondence that haven’t gone electronic (bills from the guvment, mostly).

My second workspace is a small satellite setup on my dining room table. I actually use this one quite a bit. It has a view of the reef aquarium, and Almaden Valley stretches out below the windows. It is also close to the kitchen, which is where the most essential piece of office equipment resides — the super-automatic espresso machine.

  1. Sweet. Nice and clean. I wish my desk was half as clean as that. 😛

    Why not just securely affix the laptop somewhere below the desk and attach an LCD monitor to it. 😛

  2. You have inspired me to clean up. I get all my gadget recommendations from Ryan, I got an Alto (keyboard) but haven’t taken it to the pier yet to give it a good runthrough.

  3. Would you recommend the Logitech Alto Notebook Stand with Integrated Keyboard?

    I’ve been thinking about improving my current workspace and I’ve been considering the Logitech Notebook Stand. The only thing is that it’s around 95 euros (120 dollars) here which is making me doubt.

  4. the logitech keyboard/stand thing is nice and when i saw it i clicked the link straight away because i wanted one. but it’s too expensive… might aswell just get a tft and a keyboard for that price.

  5. I like that Logitech Alto Notebook Stand with integrated keyboard. I will check them out in the UK. Always a lot dearer here 🙁

  6. Holy wow, that is an incredible workspace.

    Just one question: How do you manage with only one display now? Do you get more work done, or is it frustrating having less real estate?

    I’m considering the merits of a laptop, but the single, small screen issue realy is a downer.
