ScruffyPosted here .
Via Justin Kodama and Shailendra Rao’s work on “3D Portable Office” design, Understanding Office Ecologies , I found David Kirsh’s The Context of Work. This paper is full of insightful models, but the simplest lessons are around the distinction between neat and scruffy office usage “personality types”.
I am undeniably a scruffy, preferring to keep information accessible than organized. Thank god for Spotlight.
