Thanks to a WFH stipend from TWG, I finally replaced my decade-old desk with something a bit nicer. Some quick thoughts:

  1. The IDÅSEN is built like a tank and doesn’t wobble – even when set to max height. I’m told this is uncommon with a lot of standing desks.
  2. Being able to control my sit/stand desk via the command line has proven to be both useful and nerdy fun!
  3. Even as someone who is fully bought-in on the benefits of switching between sitting & standing regularly, I’ve been surprised at how much of a difference it’s made — particularly now that it’s easy.

Highly recommend this model, if you’re in the market.


As I wrap up my seventh week of physical distancing and working from home, I’ve found myself gravitating toward using the iPad more often. It’s the perfect form-factor for lounging on the couch reading books or noodling in Procreate.
