My Attic Office and Workspace

January 3, 2012

Here’s my space that I do most of my work. I’m a MAC person and have been since an Apple II in 1983 and I just got a MacBook Air for Christmas. It’s fun now being able to use my experience in radio, training, and video in my university teaching. I’m a progressive rock enthusiast: over the years Moody Blues, Rush, and Porcupine Tree have been the soundtracks in my head. I’m a pile person as you can see below, so I need counter and floor space. In addition to the 2000+ books are several shelves holding what I’ve written in my academic years (1992-present), but writing and talking is pretty much how I make a living. I consider myself overall as a “producer,” having been a radio and video producer, but the word provides the metaphor for how I view productive work, as a producer.

    Your office looks like a place where inspirations are born, it is definitely not a sterile environment but it is organized and resourceful much like libraries. I suppose you can go in there and everything you need is within arm’s reach, isn’t it? I wonder what you placed on the tripod?

    There’s a FLIP on the tripod. I used to have a JVC video camera but it’s ancient. So down the road I’ll buy something better than the FLIP, but the FLIP is a 4-hour HD unit and very useful. I use this to record interns teaching in public schools and quick clips of me talking to insert into video.

    I am still amazed at the quality of video and sound the Flip cameras can offer. It is neat to know the Cisco CEO John Chambers is a WVU alumnus, and they owned the Flip brand. Also, the obvious downer that they decided to discontinue it. I heard from someone I know in the networking industry that Cisco bought Flip primarily to acquire the intellectual property rights for a video codec they wanted to incorporate in other product lines.
