What do you see: My 2021 focus on a more offline worflow
Paper Named 2021 Technology of The Year
L shaped desk. I love them. I do wish the corner raised up into a standing desk. I have stacked milk crates before.
My series of journals. This is new to 2021. Insgtead of ripping htoruh pads of graph paper I bought grid journals for each area of my professional life (I bought one for the truck for rando ideas while commuting).
My Rolodex. It will kick the shit out of your CRM any day.
B Major mixolidian scale tent. I am sure these exist but its a tool I made when I need a brain break and pick up the uke and take the fingers for a walk.
Poetry. Currently Rumi and Major Jackson. Try to write poetry everyday.
Doc camera. It never works well. I need to get a second camera.
Blue Rhino mic. Great mic for the price.
Reading stand. For reading, music, or writing.
Sticky notes. How else do you expect me to think.
Monthly calendar. I have 3-4 calendars to track. Time to go old school.
A weekly to do calendar. I used to try and do this on my website. https://
Off screen: large whitebaord for writing on the floor, spreading out to think. Long term I want to paint one wall Kelly Green and three walls using whiteboard paint. Gonna be ugly as sin can't wait. Building stuido in basement and want office to follow.
My Office 2025
My office 2025: All of these are the same (the corner L raises to standing desk) but each physical element , notebooks, calendars, rolodex, is published to my own website or server. I do not want more interactive displays. Planet is burning.
Less LCD and Lithium batteries the better.
So a few smartbooks are attached to specific folders. Using something like micropub I can go to my website or to NextCloud for servers.
I bought a resusable smart notebook that syncs to the cloud and you erase the pages using a microwave. Then I remembered I don't have a microwave.
Someone told me to try a hair dryer. That might be funniest office accessory yet. Wonder what other cool things I could think of.
See you soon 2025.
