Your Digital Desktop Comes to Life: The Art of Analog Computing

Web design firm Meltmedia have created a hilarious and engaging video that asks, "What if the digital tools we use everyday exist in physical and analog space?"  The Art of Analog Computing reminds us how digitally interfaced our entire lives and workspaces really are.

"The premise of this short film is to represent the digital tools and interfaces we use daily in an analog way. In the analog office, your computer desktop becomes your actual desk, your inbox gets flooded with Spam cans, the server runs past you multiple times a day (and perhaps crashes every now and then), and Twitter users follow each other around the space."   It can only really be explained with a watch, so take the five minutes. Totally worth your time:
