March 19, 2004 — The recently established Edward Said Chair at Columbia has caused much controversy, in part because it is held by former PLO spokesman Rashid Khalidi and in part because the donors of the chair's estimated $4 million endowment have until now been kept secret.
As Campus Watch has reported, it is highly irregular for the identity of academic chair donors to be concealed.

The problem with chairs, according to Cranz and other radical ‘somatic’ practitioners who practice ‘new ergonomics,' is that we have been forced into a 'table and chair' culture, where many activities take place in a right-angled seated position.

 Review of the Herman Miller Aeron chair   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
In fact, the chair is so good I kind of wish I hadn't sat on it now because it makes every other chair I sit on not just 'pale in comparison', but it makes other chairs 'feel like a pail' in comparison.
When sitting in ordinary office chairs I tend to alter my body position to fit the chair, but the Aeron is so adjustable you can alter the chair to fit you.
There are a huge number of ways you can adjust the chair, from the thickness of the lumber support, to the height of the arm-rests.

 The Ultimate Computer Chair by Roger Arrick
Normal office chairs just don't allow you to recline without bending your body in half and many recliners have only one position and are too soft for my taste.
The main problem now is that my office is designed around a traditional sit-at-desk setup and the new computer chair changes how I interact with bookshelves, printers, radios, etc. For now, it's just stuck where my chair use to be.
However I do envy you your chair and have often thought that I might design something more comfortable that the usual office chair even if it is high backed.
