Who says you should have just one monitor with your computer? On my desk, my productivity dramatically improved when my tech support showed me that my laptop screen AND my desktop monitor could both function together as two separate monitors displaying different “halves” of my desktop.
So, if one is standard, and two is a productivity improvement, is it possible to have TOO MANY monitors?
Check this out, from Kevin Kelly’s – Street Use, an image of Adam Sender and his desk. Adam is a New York hedge fund capitalist, so he needs to see several live displays at once.
Can you count the number of monitors on his desk?
Hmmm…maybe I should request a few more screens for my desk, so I can approach Adam Sender’s level of complexity…
I forgot that I’m a minimalist.
