I’m sitting here working on a friend’s new computer and I’m surprised at how different his setup is. We both use OSX, but how strange to discover that he uses trackpad clicking. I keep accidentally launching applications. His controls are on the opposite side to where I keep mine. I’m entirely disoriented but it’s fun. And oh so revealing to see how habituated to my own computer I’ve become.
It makes me want to borrow some other tools. Other pots and pans, a different camera, someone else’s toys. What way would they impact what I create?
Anyone want to trade some tools? Let’s see what we can do with a different perspective on the physical world.Posted by kuri at September 24, 2004 02:14 AM
