'Desk-topping' i [ c/o BBC Radio 4 today 5 Feb. ]

humanistic ----------------------------------------------- mechanistic
group - population


Definition #1 below is as obvious as it is brief. A desk might be topped with various things, so-called executive toys (still?), personal affects, or company related branding.
It may have the proverbial in-tray, out-tray (paper still lingers?). The desk may be clear, or cluttered as a workspace. It will be the home of technology, it's PC - desktop - namesake, that shares the floor nearby, wired the sign of connectedness and energy.


To have 'papers' on the desk, might be to denote action of some sort, but how long are those 'papers' held for?
The subjects of the issue at hand could be experiencing a protracted delay. The desktop in this case exemplifies not just bureaucracy, but obfuscation.
