Day 10 of 30 (in 30 days of Geek)…

– Favourite hacking environment – music, light, seating, etc

First of all, I dislike overhead fluorescent lights.

  • The high frequency flickering drives me crazy and they really cause bad reflection off monitors.
  • My eyesight is bad enough without adding that nonsense.
  • So, in corporate environments, I prefer to unscrew the bulbs to save energy and stop them annoying me.

Seating wise, I prefer a nice upright chair.

  • My favourite?  The Herman Miller Aaron chair:
  • aaron chairHad one of those when I was working at Vodafone .

What else do you need to work productively?
