Voigt did not have a shortage of messy parts of his desk to capture on film (well, you know what I mean)!

Wow, there are some great ones here.  What bad timing I have.  I just cleaned mine up.

Well, naperlou, if you are anything like your counterparts, I'm sure you will have something to show us in no time.

I need to show these to my wife. Maybe she'll stop bothering me to clean up my office. One of the downsides of working from home.

I, for one, find organization in my chaos. I imagine this is true for a lot of people.

I am kind of a neat freak, but how people can work in messes like that is beyond me!

Besides 3D printers and EV conspiracies, we tend to love messy desks here.

Variety is the spice of life, as the saying goes.  Some people are neat and unproductive.  Some are messy and productive.  And, most fall somewhere in between.

Jenn, I think the fact that you were inspired to do this slideshow by your own messy desk is funny. Mine used to be pretty insane back in the day, and someone told me it was a sign of a creative mind. That was comforting, and I always knew where everything was. But then I lost something really important in the stack--a credit card bill--and there were, um, consequences. Now I try to clean it up a lot more often. Plus, the available desktop area has gotten much smaller, so, I have to.

These are some impressively messy desks. Mike Carter gets the Biggest Mess award because his work space appears to be tipping over. Erich Voight is a close second based on sheer scope. It must take a great deal of fortitude to continue working under these conditions.

I agree with your selections, Charles.  Bet there's a pack of 8-inch floppy disks somewhere in Mike Carter's work area.  I'm a neat-freak compared to the people who submitted these photos.

Wow!! I thought an ex-coworker's desk was messy but nothing compared to the ones in the slide show.  He had what I called a functional messy office.  The man could find anything at any time on his desk and floor piles.  It was amazing.

From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
