Tell us a bit about yourself.

My online name is Floating Stars. After working at a PC manufacturer for three years, I resigned and started my own business as a tech blogger.

What’s your favorite item on your desk?

My Genelec G3 speakers. They sound incredible.

What's your desk setup aesthetics?

I prefer a style that blends sci-fi, futuristic, cyberpunk, and minimalist mechanical elements.

When did you start to work on your desk setup?

About three years ago, I began setting up my own personal workspace consciously after achieving financial independence.

What does your typical day look like?

Wake up, get up, write scripts, shoot videos, meditate, eat... My daily routine as a tech blogger typically revolves around creating content.

What niche interest are you up to recently?

I enjoy listening to rock music.

What books, blogs, or podcasts recently caught your attention?

I recommend a book called Blue, Another Kind of Blue. It's a fascinating story about a different kind of life and choices, and offers an introspective analysis of one's own life.

Your advice for beginners getting into Desk Setup.

First, select a color scheme that appeals to you, and then choose your equipment to match the scheme. This approach usually yields a good outcome.

Any tips for other makers who want to improve their workspaces?

Your work environment is crucial. Choose equipment that you genuinely like and that has both high quality and a good texture. This will enhance your work efficiency and improve your mood. Avoid focusing solely on cost-effectiveness, as it can sometimes lead to regrettable compromises.
