Does your company make you clean your virtual office?

Can you have virtual clutter?

 

 I spent the other day cleaning up my iPhone.  Yes, my iPhone.

 

It had become cluttered with quite a few apps.  In fact, I had over 120 apps installed when I started cleaning.

 

I had been avoiding it for a while.  In fact, I had been using iPhone’s Spotlight feature to find some of my apps since they were buried in many pages of icons.

 

As I cleaned I tried to keep only the bare essentials, but it was so hard to DELETE those programs.  Even though I could always download them again in a few moments from the app store.  Was I being a virtual packrat?

 

This is not necessarily something new.  After all, look at the desktop on most Windows PCs.  Most are littered with dozens of files, programs, etc.

 

So, as we move more and more into virtual workplaces… will companies have a “clean up your virtual office day?”

 

What do you think?  Should people be responsible for their virtual work environment?

    I’m pretty dynamic one how I organize my iPhone, with the most used apps moving to the top, and the least used going to the last page (I have at most 3). After that, they get deleted off because they are so far down in usefulness.

    I work for a Fortune 500 company that is petty and superficial; they’re more concerned with items setting too high in cubicleland than in electronic efficiency. That said, my own workstation needs cleaning, and I do some of it on occasion. But it is difficult to do unless there is a problem, and then I sort the heck out of things. After all, the clutter is digital and I don’t have to trip over it or hang it up.
