Putting Stickers on Your Computers
So I just created GovLoop stickers for your laptop. I’ve noticed it’s really common elsewhere but I haven’t seen it in government.
And honestly it’s probably not allowed.
Most government-issued or corporate-issued is treated like their property and you have no control. Everything is locked down and no personalization is allowed.
Basically you aren’t trusted.
I think we need to change that.
People can decorate their cubicles. And I think for new knowledge workers their cubicle is basically their laptop and cell-phone.
If people have to use their work laptop and cell-phone for 80% of their day for years…let them customize it. Put their favorite app, their daughter as screen saver, a sticker on the phone.
