What’s on a mobile CTO’s desktop?

Along the lines of ”how to [..] feed your CTO“, and “N things you didn’t know about blogger X“, I was staring at my cluttered desktop, wondering what it all means.



  • A variety of development tools (Eclipse, Visual Studio, MySQL, Wireshark, FTP, SCP, JMeter scripts, a JSON parser)
  • The Android SDK
  • Portions of a mobile web book I am writing
  • Slideware for various products  & projects
  • Domain analysis results
  • An Ubuntu ISO image and an Apache install
  • An OPML file of mobile blogs
  • My registration form for MWC
  • A JPG helpfully named “graph”
  • A bunch of browsers
  • The hiring plan for my team
  • MetaWeb Query Language documentation
  • Mobile Monday Dublin’s Peer Awards application forms
  • Two mysterious text files called “yes” and “no” (?!)
  • Some social network clients
  • Something to listen to
  • Armadillo Run
  • …and a folder named “temp” – where all this rubbish is shortly headed.

Yes, that pretty much sums up the last 3 months of my life. What’s on your desktop – and why?

    This is a truly amazing accessibility. I found your blog through bing although browsing an identical subject material. I really consumed up everything you needed to discuss. Keep up the great work!

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    This will be a terrific website, will you be involved in doing an interview about just how you developed it? If so e-mail me!

    Wonderful site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
