Was browing around Al Gore’s blog this afternoon when I came across this photo of him working in his office. It’s from a Time magazine article on the former V.P. written in May 2007 — and hinting at Gore’s potential to be a 2008 Presidential candidate. We all know how that turned out, but I thought I’d post this photo here for those that have never seen it. I’ve heard a messy desk is indicative of an orderly mind, but wow — someone needs to get Danny Seo into this guy’s room quick!

    glad to see Al Gore is as fond of using his desk drawers as I am :).

    Three 30-inch monitors? You can justify maybe one if you’re doing professional photo or movie editing, but three just makes you a dick.

    The electronics in that room are eating up at least four kilowatts (not including the lights and whatever gadgets are not visible). He could be spending a fraction of that if he used a laptop instead, it’s not like he _needs_ that kind of a setup to do his work. A perfect example of preaching one thing and doing another.

    He must not type very much, because there’s no resting pad for his wrist below the keyboard, which is at the edge of the desk.
