We found a lovely post that helped us reflect on life beyond the digital. Joel Dueck tells us about this item of furniture,

“The secretary, a compartmentalized working-space, may be thought of as the RSS reader of the past.

The linked post, is really only a paragraph but the idea in it is wonderful. 

Today, I wrote a post on my 1999.io blog, read my RSS reader, tweeteted, answered tweets, found some lovely stuff. I worked on a website and went back an forward many times on email. 

The image of a bureau captures this delightfully. I imagine a webpage version that looks as organised as the image posted.
