Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Bill Gates’ desk doesn’t look like yours

Bill Gates has an awfully clean desk. Check out the photo in his writeup on “How I Work” for Fortune.

Other nuggets from the essay:

Gates only reads about 100 e-mails a day, and automatically filters the e-mail so that it only comes from people he knows, people he has corresponded with in the past and people from his company or partner companies.

He doesn’t like to-do lists.

He usually ignores the little notification box on Outlook that pops up when a new e-mail comes in.

He gets 90 percent of his news online, and takes notes in digital form on his Tablet PC. His one low-tech piece of office equipment is a whiteboard.

He tends to write long, thoughtful pieces of e-mail over the weekend: “When people come in Monday morning, they’ll see that I’ve been quite busy — they’ll have a lot of e-mail.”
