Tabletop tours spotlighting the desktop essentials of start-up CEOs.
Who: Dave Goldberg, CTO of Contently, a company that connects storytelling professionals with brands looking to create high-quality media content
Where: Soho, NYC
Take us on a tour of your desk. What's most important to you — and what's your biggest conversation starter? Day-to-day items include my laptop, pens, pencils, protein bars, and my notebooks — I handwrite my notes, which is funny, since I'm kind of the Tech-Nerd-in-Chief here. As for conversation starters, I'd say the fun things are the items I'm asked most about: the lunch box, the dinosaur, the bear, which is made out of a redwood tree. They were all gifts at some point or another. They have nostalgic value — they're the types of things I look at and think, remember when that happened? That's why I keep them around.
Do you listen to music while you're working? What are your tunes of choice? Oh, yeah. Right now I'm listening to a playlist on Spotify called "Most Necessary." It's pretty hip-hoppy. It's good stuff — I'd recommend it.
Lastly, please draw your top three desktop tools.
Thanks so much, Dave! Learn more about Contently, here.
