I spent years working in small cubicles dreaming of the day I’d have my own office. Four walls with a door was all I wanted. Having a peaceful workplace away from all the office drama was a constant yearning of mine.

That dream office I wished for–I never got it. What I did get was a good lesson in making the most of what I have instead of wishing for something different. I had to learn how to make the best of whatever office space I had…even if it was just a very small cubicle!

Today I’m collaborating with


to discuss how you can make the most of your work space, no matter how big (or small) it is. Whether you feel like a fish in a sardine can stuck in a teeny-tiny cubicle or have a whole room for an office, these tips will help you hone in on what you need in a work space to make it functional and help make you productive.

Marek Slama, Sun Microsystems/NetBeans Abstract: Document provides informative guide for developer how to add workspaces to the new window system implementation. Document History: [11/20/2003] : version 0.1 : {First preliminary version of the document}

[11/24/2003] : version 0.2 : {Added info about model, view and configuration data}


1 Overview

This document describes what is necessary to do to implement workspace concept in new window system implementation. Workspaces are separate sets of Modes. Workspaces are displayed exclusively ie. only one workspace is displayed at given moment (plugged to AWT hierarchy). It means that workspaces can share TopComponent instances (ie. TopComponent instances must be detached from workspace which is set hidden/attached to workspace which is set visible). It is question how groups of TopComponents should...

Firefox lets you tell websites that you do not want them to track your browsing behavior. This article explains what tracking is and how to turn on the Do Not Track feature.

Most major websites track their visitors' behavior and then sell or provide that information to other companies. This information can be used to show ads, products or services specifically targeted to you. Firefox has a Do Not Track feature that lets you tell every website you visit, their advertisers, and content providers that you don't want your browsing behavior tracked.

Honoring this setting is voluntary — individual websites are not required to respect it. Websites that do honor this setting should automatically stop tracking your behavior without any further action from you. Turning on this feature will not affect your ability to log in to websites nor cause Firefox to forget your private information, such as the contents of shopping carts, location information or login...

A couple of weeks ago I took readers on a video tour of my blogging workspace and invited others to share theirs via video or picture. A few days later I put together a mashup post of 27 reader blogging workspaces. I said at the time that I wasn’t sure if I’d do another mashup – however the submissions continued to come in so I thought I’d do one last one.

Here’s the latest reader blogging workspaces (another 27 of them):

Bob Ostrom shared a fun view of his office:

Charity’s is very neat!

Ryan Paul blogs mainly from work:

Shawn Farner blogs from the kitchen table:

SeoVice has some fun stuff around their workstation:

Michael got a new desk for his birthday

Ryan Caldwell shares a few images of his – here’s one (bonus points for having ProBlogger on the screen at the time!):

Mark’s Blogging HQ:

Kamal shares theirs:

Using the Dash or a terminal, open the dconf-editor application. Navigate to


And set the horizontal and vertical dimensions of your wall. A workspace switcher will immediately appear on the launcher. You can use this or Super-s to view the virtual desktops / workspaces.


To set this using command-line, execute the command:

gsettings set org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ hsize 2

This will immediately enable workspaces. This command will actually set hsize to 2 and vsize to 2, giving you 4 workspaces arranged in a square, which is the default when you enable workspaces from the GUI "Appearance"...

Earlier this week, my colleague Jason Feifer published a funny and rousing anti-open office manifesto, decrying Fast Company's shared workspaces and singing the praises of private offices.

Our mostly open workspace, Jason argued, is distracting and productivity killing, and it doesn't promote collaboration! But I believe that the problem with Fast Company's office isn't that we have a mostly open office layout. The problem with our office is that we haven't approached our open office layout the right way. And while I definitely don't believe that open office plans magically create divine levels of collaboration, I don't agree with Jason's proposition that giving everyone in every company their own private room is a good solution.

Here are a few reasons why I don't support Jason's all-private-office proposal:

Dear Lifehacker,
My closet looks like a landfill. It holds a bunch of old stuff I don't need anymore, and I feel like I could use the space better by turning it into an office. I want to do it right—not just shove a desk inside and call it a day. What's the best way to turn my closet into a personal workspace?

Confused Closeteer

Dear CC,
You can turn your closet into an amazing workspace, but you have to clean it out first. Perhaps it's all junk, with maybe a few things you can donate, but you might be surprised by what you can sell. Regardless, get rid of everything you don't need and find new places for items you have to keep. Clothing, for example, does well in a chest of drawers or even on bookshelves (if you keep it nice and folded). Once you have everything out of the way, you can start planning. Let's take it step-by-step.

Step One: Get Some Inspiration and Plan Ahead

Closets make great workspaces, as we've seen many...
