Al Gore: Clutter monkey

This picture of Al Gore at his home office is making the rounds on the Mac blogs because it shows his sweet computing set-up. What caught my attention, however, was the crazy clutter surrounding the former veep.

How’s he going to save the world if he can’t find the keys to his hybrid? Mr. Gore needs to point his awesome 3-screened Mac to Unclutterer’s tips on office organization and our series on paper clutter and magazine clutter. Don’t worry, Mr. Vice President, there’s hope for you yet!

    You know, The Shrub solves this clutter problem by not reading – ANYTHING! – and I suspect his mind is free of clutter as well.

    There he goes again, greening the earth with his three 30″ monitor system. Way to save energy and reduce carbon loading ex-veep Gore!!!

    Is it more important to get things done or have a tidy office?

    I’d take a focused, successful, passionate, informed person with a less than perfect desk over the opposite.. the uncluttered desk is a means to an end, but if people are successful with a less than perfect desk, why knock him for that? This doesn’t mean he can’t find the keys and we don’t know he can’t find anything he wants. Many people know where everything is in their less than perfectly uncluttered life.

    Messy desk equals ordered mind. It is a sign of genius.
