“A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world”

A while ago a colleague of mine posted a blog about his desk at work. He used the words of Gunnery Sgt Hartman, and so I will be no less of a man;

DSC_0180-1“The Desk is a system. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy.”

(almost a quote from the great Morpheus)

This desk fetish was picked up by Anders Hammervold, which again challenged Joar Øyen, which again challenged me… And since Joar also challenged Pål Fossmo – who still haven’t published his desk – the pressure is now on The Reverend…

Oh, and before I forget; that quote in the title is by John Le Carré. A fabulous quote if I may say so.
