Who are you, and what do you do?
Hi, my name’s Jeff. I do design and new ideas here at the Lab. The Lab ROCKS! It’s a great job. Sometimes I help make websites (like this one), sometimes I do classes and right now, even working on some policy-ish stuff with folks from here and the Berkman Center.

What hardware do you use?

I have a mac tower that is cool. I have 2 monitors, that’s good.  I also have a Mac Mighty Mouse

I like the wheel, but gunk does get stuck in it so it requires maintenance.  I’d say the hardware I’m passionate about is the Grado SR60 Headphones.

Now those things actually rock. For those with immediate officemates or a quiet atmosphere they are quite acoustically transparent. The other piece of noise control technology I like is earplugs.

Both of these tools allow me to better get lost in thought…  I’ve been using earplugs since college, so at this point it’s practically associative:  Ear Plugs in = (More) Focus

I also drink coffee out of a jar because I can put it in my bag, SEAL IT, and confidently ride to work without it spilling.

And that brings me to that ruler in the background.  I like the ruler, it has so many uses.

What would be your dream setup
I’m curious about that inkling thing. Maybe waiting for version two.

Well.  Now that I think about it, this would be my dream setup
