Cabinet makers mostly make cabinets, but they do well to spend a certain amount of time equipping their shop with contemporary tools and learning new techniques. Likewise so-ho knowledge workers... OPKSNet is my approximation of the PerfectOffice. Obviously, the perfect office has AlwaysOnInternet. There's an art to finding the right balance between RemotePresence (chat/instant messaging, and, well, telephone) perhaps VideoPresence, email (hmm... MailStorePuzzle) and face-to-face contact (TravelCheckList). A WearableGizmo fills in many of the gaps, but ConfidentialityVersusAvailability is always an issue. I trade in open source and open standards. <a href="">advogato</a> is my guild. (see also/refactor: FriendOfDanConnolly). Our trade rag is "Slashdot": (also: <a href="">light</a>. hmm... does anything else suck less? <a href="">quit slashdot</a> article seems interesting. Yes, now that I think about it, the most interesting slashdot articles tend to be pointers to <a href="">Ars Technica</a> articles). (ToDo... RSS aggregate of regular reading materials?) Mostly, DebianLinuxJustWorks... better with each issue of the <a href="">Debian weekly news</a>... but when it comes to ease of use and media integration, one has to wonder... ToMacOrNotToMac (also: StudentOfMacOsX, FilmKiller, PaperlessOffice). Creature comforts are important. A FlatPanelDisplay is a huge quality-of-life win. (hmm... WirelessNetworkingUpsAndDowns). And like the cabinet maker's shop, the PerfectOffice has a certain amount of money going in and out; we hope for a FractalAccounting system for keeping track of it. <hr>**Aug2004**: is the chair in the PerfectOffice a <a href="">balance ball</a>? <hr />**11Feb2004**: <a href="">The Kitchenputer</a>... go kbob!

My WearableGizmo is sync'd with <a href="">my t-mobile/danger account</a>. I invested a bit of time in building a <a href="">list of blogs at bloglines</a>. I just put some non-trivial stuff in <a href="">my flickr account</a>. I back up the t-mobile data fairly regularly using the XMLRPC interface. delicious has a "give me all my data" API and I tried it out once, so I'm confident I could do it any time I like. I wonder if there's any reason to back up my advogato diary... if that community goes bust, will I want my notes? Yes, I suppose so.

The deal is gone, but I want a chair like that.
