Only 12 inches??? Guess he had a lot of space for more stacks. You may laugh, but at least there seems to be some grudging appreciation when someone comes around in a panic and a report pulled out of the "mesozoic" layer an inch and a half from the bottom just happens to have the info needed to solve the urgent problem.

I saw Pease's cubicle first-hand, and the photo in this article does not do it justice. I felt really bad for the folks who had to help him move from Building C to Building D. Because he was so senior, he eventually ended up with two cubicles. One for all of his clutter, and one for his desk (and more clutter).

I think clean desk means designer is more worried about the desk rather than the design he is working on. So more messier the desk more involved the designer is.

@wilbex_xbox, yes clean desk gives the feeling that they are not working on the design.

@vjl, they are programmed to work like that. If the desk is clean and not messy then I guess they feel soemthing is not quite right :).

I happen to know her son. She both changed the world and raised good kids at the same time. And Amen for @zeeglan's comments about progress without sports. Name me 10 jocks that changed the world - it will take a while. Name me 10 nerds - just point to most of the people around you.

There was a EE at HP that bolted everything to the bench top. He didn't want them falling on him as he cowered under the bench. (This was building 52 Upper in Santa Clara.)

The reason, I believe, the mess is what it is has to do the the degree of focus the individual has on the task at hand. They are more interested in pursuing whatever their objective is at that moment rather than worrying about tidying up. The latter is wasted energy because it does not support pursuit of the objective. Most engineers, and I include myself among them, get so focused on whatever they are thinking about in a development/debug mode where you are pursuing an answer....nothing else matters. Thus the issues with messy desks, hygeine, eating habits, stackup up Red Bull cans etc. People could take a lesson from being so single minded about a particular task. The pursuit of perfection is messy.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
