I’ve been doing a lot of computer catch up today. In the midst of doing that I’ve had opportunity to be surfing to one place or another that popped up in emails. One of the sites I’ve spent a few minutes with tonight is http://www.on-my-desk.blogspot.com/, where artists share their studios.
It’s always interesting to see how people arrange their workspaces – be it an artist’s studio or someone’s desk at work. My studio space is always messy if I’m working in it. The only time it’s nice and tidy is when I’m not really doing anything in there, which, of course, defeats the purpose of having a studio.
As I was looking at that site tonight I was thinking about how cool it is that I can see studios from around the world sitting in my little home office in Hutchinson, Kansas. The internet is such a part of my daily life that it’s mindboggling to think it was really only in 1995 that I first surfed the net. It would be some years after that that I had a computer at home and regular access.
The thought of being on that slow computer on that slow dial up doesn’t sound very appealing now, but at the time it was quite wonderful. Computers have dramatically changed our daily lives. I spend many hours a day working on the computer now – hours that people obviously used to spend doing other things.
