A catch phrase will go here soon.

Are those three Dell 2405 monitors on BillG's desk?


Looking at this photo I *thought* those were three Dell 2405, 24″ inch monitors… however, they look more like ~20″ widescreen monitors… anyone recognize them?

I have two 2405′s on my desktop… so, I think I’ve got almost the same amount of screen real estate as BillG. I have to agree with him when he says: “If you look at this office, there isn’t much paper in it. On my desk I have three screens, synchronized to form a single desktop. I can drag items from one screen to the next. Once you have that large display area, you’ll never go back, because it has a direct impact on productivity.”

Large monitors make wisdom workers (fka knowledge workers) about 100% more effective. I’m standardizing our entire staff on 24″ monitors over the next six months for this reason… I’m also encouraging them to buy a second on their own nickle (AOL will pay for one, but they won’t pay for two… go figure :-) .

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
