Check out user-submitted photos of some astonishingly messy engineering work stations. It's clearly a sign of genius.
Earlier in the week, I posted photos of engineering workspaces of the late Jim Williams (Linear Technology) and Bob Pease (National Semiconductor). Seeing those photos prompted me to ask, "What about yours?" How messy are there and, ergo, how much of a genius are you, really?
The photos are rolling in, and we're on the hunt for more!. We'll collect as many as we can as they come in in the coming days, and then we'll put the photos to a vote: Whose workstation shouts most loudly: "genius."

Currently, part of what I do help design computers for audio professionals. This area is a R&D, testing and repair area.
Well said Realsena
But I write if you allow me. Engineers are "In in solving mode" for more complexe Technical problems, but seem might lead to ignore simple things and seem "messy" from a different perspective;the general perspective. But leaving as it is might be simplest way, leaving room for...comments
Anyone who’s worked in chip industry will have listened to the hardware guys blaming a software problem, only to cross the room and find that the software guys are convinced that “the problem’s in the hardware.”
