Not to forget all those instruments of torture-pleasure in the queery backrooms
of electronically enhanced intellectuaism: I beware in the souterrain of our
house an IMSAI (CP/M on Intel 8086) filling the half of a desk, a portable
KAYPRO II, two ATARI (one with external hard-drive), a full-equiped NEXT-Station
and some wracked MS-PCs. Probably the messy collection says something about my
mind but I hope that this doesn't infect my postings ;-)

I have had fun imagining what objects surround digital humanists in their
work spaces after reading Sara Ahmed quote, in Queer Phenomenology, Diana

the theatre of composition is not an empty space but a place animated by
artifacts, momentos, machines, books, and furniture that frame any
intellectual labour. (2004, The Sense of an Interior: Four Writers and the
Rooms that Shaped Them)
