Experiment with Standing and Computing

I get it, Dr. Sanjay Gupta. If I stand more and sit less, I stand (pun intended) to live a longer life. Gupta covered the latest study from the American Cancer Society here, and the study has been picked up by other online sites, too.

I am going to give it a try by reducing how much time I spend sitting in front of my computer. I can’t realistically do away with my computing time, but I can stand more while I am using my MacBook. Thus, I stationed my Ikea Vika Amon desk on top of two plastic bins (currently full of Lego bricks and three older Lego Space Shuttles), which you can see above. I will report back about my experiment in the future.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
