Back in January of this year, Lifehacker featured a Wesleyan student’s dorm room as a great example of a workspace “working within the constraints of small spaces, crappy furniture, and more often than not a rather limited budget.” I saw this back then because I’m a daily Lifehacker reader (People who’ve been to my room can attest that I can be somewhat OCD), but for some reason it seemed to slip past Wesleying. An email about it would up in our “Did Not Post” folder and I can’t find any old posts about it. Now that Lifehacker’s brought it up again as one of their “Most Popular Featured Workspaces of 2010,” we might as well take a(nother) look at “The Cordless Dorm.”
Seemingly located in one of the Foss Hill dorms, Lifehacker reader tobobo did his best to create a clean, open workspace. Here are the highlights:
- All wires are out of sight.
- Ze used Ikea dioder strips to cast a cool glow behing the monitor.
- Everything that doesn’t need to be seen, including the laptop that the monitor is connected to, isn’t seen. It’s stowed away in the wide drawer.
