It’’s no secret that I don’t care much for paper. If I can do something electronically instead of with paper, I usually choose pixels over pulp. When I started developing our Intranet at my full-time job, we had a contest between the employees to determine the name for it. My suggestion was to call it [...]
Have you ever wondered how I collect the items for Saturday Snippets? Because I use Bloglines as my RSS aggregator, when a particular blog entry makes an impression on me I simply save it to my Clippings folder. On Saturday, I review this folder, blog about them, and then delete them from the Clippings folder. [...]
Diet advice applies to our productivity as well.
In August of 2004 I stumbled upon an article in the newspaper entitled “Lots of low-carb snacks equal high-carb intake.” This article explains that when we have more choice in what we eat, we tend to eat more:

A day late. Sorry. Perhaps I should have entitled this one Sunday Snippets. Here are links to some of the best blog posts that I’ve read over the past week.
A lot of the things that make us productive are just little tricks. Back on April 14th Steve Pavlina challenged us all with his 30 [...]
Apparently I have some problem with my computer system. I don’t know if it is a problem with Windows XP, My D-Link DI-713P Wireless Gateway with Print Server, or my HP Deskjet 5550 printer. Once or twice a week I will try to print something and nothing will happen. I can see the print job [...]

About four years ago I remember attending a technology seminar. The speaker broke us up into small groups of 3 or 4 and gave us some questions to answer. One of those questions was, “What is your biggest worry?” I was the only [...]
I had a breakfast business meeting Saturday morning. I needed to take my 12″ iBook to the meeting so I put it in my eBags Downloader Laptop Backpack and headed off to my meeting.
