Work Areas – Four Years Apart

December 1, 2006 at 1:17 am 2 comments

In 2002, a co-worker took a picture of me at my work area.  My desk was quite a clutter, but the picture captured a lot of little hints of my life.  So I went ahead and marked up the picture with numbers and described the different items on my personal website.

Flash forward over four years.  Another co-worker took a picture of me in my work area (an office now).   My desk was slightly cleaner this time around (I knew my picture was going to be taken), but still a few items of note.  I went ahead and marked it up on Flickr.



Some quick observations:

  • I think I have superior sweater taste in 2006.
  • I sure look better without glasses.
  • My “new” hair color looks remarkably similiar to my 2002 choice!
  • I have a new computer, new keyboard, new mouse and new phone now– but the monitor and the speakers are the same in both pictures.
  • The green stuffed frog is present in both pictures- can you find him?
  • I’m not sure what happened to my St. Isadore of Seville (the picture I have on my monitor in the 2006 picture) in 2002.  St. Isadore of Seville is the patron saint of computers and computer technicians.  I clearly remember having him on my monitor circa 2000.  I guess he took a haitus for a few years.
  • In 2002, I highlighted some green tags sporting my name on the phone (#9).  It labeled my phone during one of our moves.  I *still* have a similiar green tag on one of my speakers from the exact same move (label did not make the picture)!  It appears 4 years is a little to short for me to remove labels.  🙂
