Get festive with our Holiday Technology Tree

The techie tree on display

The holiday season is a big deal here at the TechRepublic Offices -- that is to say we like to celebrate. One way we show our festive spirit is with a Holiday Technology Tree. Our techie tree features gadgets, gizmos, cracked open equipment, and TR swag strung up on a tree-like structure created with a camera tripod and lots of Ethernet cable. It is a site to behold as you can see in this TechRepublic Photo Gallery.

The TR Holiday Technology Tree is on display in the office breakroom. Besides some vending machines, microwaves, and the all-important coffee machine we have a TV with consoles hooked up to it. See I don't break everything I crack open.

I also want to acknowledge the efforts of Senior Editors Mary Weilage and Selena Frye and Head Blogs Editor Toni Bowers - the tree is actually their creation.
