I’ve had Aerons since the early 2000s and have from time to time tried other chairs. Nothing come close in my opinion. Got them for everyone at the office.

I mean think about it! You spend more time in your chair than you do doing just about anything else, including sleeping. Plus the good chairs are nearly indestructible. It’s a no brainer and not the thing to skimp on. Your body will thank you.

Yes. It’s not linear though. If you spend $300-$600 you can get a quality chair [look at Autonomous]

Or the second hand market for aeron chairs is great.

For me yes. I love my boogie expensive chair 🪑

Are treadmill desks and cycle desks harder for data scientists to use than general consultants?

I might be overthinking this though.
