Justin Harter’s Oddity of the Day #312

I don’t have a clock in my office.

Or at least, not one I look at. I turned the clock off on my menu bar some time ago, so my computer doesn’t show the time. I don’t look at my phone unless it rings. I don’t wear a watch at my desk either. But, I’ve learned to identify what time it is, vaguely, by other means.

At 8 am, the kids get on the school bus.
At 10:15 am, the guy down the street walks to the bus stop.
At 11:30 the mailman arrives.
At 3:30 the elementary kids get off the school bus.
At 4:45 the high school kids off the school bus.

The upside here is that I just work until I’m hungry or I’m done. Works well in tandem with no Growl notifications or IMs or email notifications every 10 seconds.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
