Your Desk 2.0 Could Win a Prize

Happy New Year! I'll do more rabble-rousing soon, but let's start 2009 with some fun. So, my friends over at cloudworker.org thought up another bright idea for their January contest, which they call 'the big tweet-off.' The idea is to explore the changing nature of work by having people submit pictures of their workspaces, which will then be used in some creative mash-up art. So, take a picture, maybe with your cellphone, upload it through twitpic or some other means, and tweet the URL to @cloudworker. If you've been waiting for an excuse to start using twitter, this could be it. Contest ends Jan 31. Seems like they have some cool prizes up their sleeves.I submitted a non-competing entry (since I was kinda involved in getting them started). At first I thought, how can a boring picture of a desk be creative and show off new ways of working? Here's what I came up with: recursive photos taken by my tethered webcam (the USB cable you see is actually what the camera is connected to). I call this pair of pictures "My desk introspecting." See if you can beat my creativity!And a close-up. Doesn't capture my whole physical workspace, but does capture my virtual workspace.
