I bribed myself to stop doing this:

hacking on bed

With this:

working at a
standing desk

I don't have a lot of space for a proper chair/desk setup at home, but this little desk is something I could squeeze in with some rearranging.

It gets me out of bed to check my email in the morning, and is a good deterrent to doing terrible things to my back on those days when I want to hack on a personal project for a weekend day and don't want to go out to a cafe or library.

My feet still hurt when standing for long periods though I got an anti-fatigue mat, but I hear that gets better with time.

I still have a sitting desk at work which I'm pretty happy with. This way I stand sometimes and sit sometimes too.

indeed pretty cool !!!

i usually stay in your before position :(

and your idea is really cool what keyboard are you using and what anti fatigue mat ?
