I have been doing sometimes intensive, sometimes relaxed, research on the nature of virtual desktops for the last 11 years. Before that I did regular readings on digital documents and their gradual introduction in office environments.
The list of desk forms and types is partly a summary of the real non-virtual desk articles I have started.
I am also making additions to related articles such as ones dealing with the user interface and others dealing with the industrial revolution. The different phases of the industrial revolution (or the first industrial revolution, the second industrial revolution and so on, if you prefer these terms) all tie these elements together from an historical point of view. The article on the office of the future and others linked to it tie up things from the point of view of the user interface issue.
And I am making a few additions to articles related to Military History and to the History of Technology.
I am now trying out the visual editor and it works!
Whenever I am given the choice, I place my contributions in Wikipedia in the public domain.
