I change workspaces about every 18 months. Each time, I pack up my stuff in a big moving box and take it to my next office or cube down the hall where it inevitably never gets unpacked. This week I decided to take some time and see what was in the boxes:
1 Compaq portable PC circa 1991, still functioning. No I never worked on it, it was a video prop.
1 Chef’s Tocque
14 miscellaneous employee awards
1 Web design handbook from 1997
1 shrink-wrapped copy of Fox Pro 2.5 for DOS
1 high school yearbook
1 somewhat Catholic looking shrine to the patron saint of cooks
1 1992 edition of the AP style book
18 misc. books from Charlene Li, Geoffrey Moore, Seth Godin, Peter Drucker, Miguel de Cervantes . . .
4 sharpies, 3 notebooks, misc. post-it notes, lots of UX sketches
2 pictures of my wife, 3 pictures of my dogs
1 giant font library book
3 random Pantone squares
