Life laundry your desktop

Last week I highlighted the BumpTop computer interface with its design principle that a messy virtual desktop actually contains a lot of very useful implicit information.

The exact opposite of this approach is to make use of what is being called Zenware – software that helps keep the desktop clear and uncluttered. These little applications perform various tactical tasks in the background to try and keep the number of menus, sidebars, pop-ups etc. from distracting you. There’s a nice piece on this kind of virtual life laundry in Slate.
