We live in a cynical age. And with this cynicism, it’s very easy to lose sight of the good that government can do. But we need to remember that most public servants get into government positions because they have good intentions, and that they actually achieve a lot for us. Daily life simply wouldn’t be running so smoothly otherwise.
I positively love technology. But I would have to – you don’t really work for a technology company if you’re not positively passionate about gadgets and spinning, shining, sparkling hardware. When it comes right down to it, I really just want the world to catch up to my childhood vision of the future. I think you know what I mean by that: Flying cars, humanoid robots with humanity, and equipment that reacts to your presence and interacts with you.
I’ve been teaching off and on for some years now. And I have always loved classrooms and auditoriums that were just absolutely packed full of shiny, fancy hardware. One of my favorite classrooms was one in which every student desk had a high-end laptop embedded inside the main panel. Better yet, all the laptops were networked, and could be fully-controlled by the instructor’s workstation (that included a desktop computer and a linked control panel) at the front of the class. I always had fun in the hour or so before giving lectures just fiddling around at this workstation. Even as I finalized my lesson for the day, I played with the AV controller, the amplifiers, and the light dimmers. It was fun (I’m a child at heart; does it show?).
I have worked and studied at a lot of labs over the course of my life. And while every lab had its own distinct visual and functional characteristics, there was at least one huge commonality to them all. They all had tons of equipment (and I am being literal when I say “tons” here) and the lab managers/techies all faced organizational challenges with the equipment.

I love giving talks. But I hate setting up the projection equipment. Especially when I’m in another city, away from the comfort zone of knowing that I have all the adapters a)that I need, and b)which actually work. Many of my audio visual presentations were delayed because of broken adapters onsite. The worst such experience happened when I was responsible for setup.
Today, the notion of what constitutes a legitimate workspace has taken on new meanings. Mobile devices can take your business anywhere you want - in your company office, your living room, or even a coffee shop. But, that doesn’t mean that you can do anything you want.
