Backpack gets refreshed by 37Signals

Something for all you Backpack fans…
37Signals relaunched their Backpack service today. The app’s back end code was completely rebuilt from scratch, according to Jason Fried, and the service also got a new UI to match some of 37Signals’ other recently updated products (such as Basecamp). The design still feels very familiar to any 37Signals app […]

Want your question answered? Ask it last.

My friend Ben Yoskovitz laments a common problem we all have faced dealing with folks via e-mail…not getting a critical question answered:
And that’s frustrating. You can’t keep asking the same question over and over, and presumably you’re asking the question because you really want an answer.

Tip: The last question you ask in an email is […]

Using Gmail address hacks for GTD and other stuff

 Did you know that to Gmail trishussey and tris.hussey are the same?  Yep.  And if you say do something like [email protected] you can have a whole new e-mail address to filter on?
You can reformat your existing Gmail address by inserting dots (periods) anywhere within your Gmail username. The Gmail Help pages explain:
Because Gmail doesn’t recognize […]

Doodle your way to a meeting time

No I don’t mean drawing goofy things on a piece of paper. I mean using the site/service Doodle to help you plan a meeting:

So, lately, I’ve found myself informally assuming this role, driving a surprising number of gone-fallow projects just by using Doodle to propose a simple check-in. The bottom line is that this […]

Making the case for Enterprise 2.0

Are you trying to bring Web 2.0 into your work place?  You know that wikis, RSS, blogs, and other apps will save you time but you can’t quite get the boss to sign on?
I know the feeling.  I’ve snuck more than my share of apps over the years into companies.  The only way got away […]

Expanding the top 5 Web 2.0 apps into the virtual office

Gili over on Connected Internet (one of my fav sites for new and opinion, btw) has picked the top 5 Web 2.0 apps for the enterprise. They are:

Salesforce.com
Zoho office
Basecamp
Wordpress
Google Apps

I haven’t tried Salesforce.com or Zoho yet (though I keep meaning to), they rest I have tried and I can recommend them without hesitation. I […]

Just get it done, get it done fast, repeat as needed

Have lots to get done? Spinning your wheels? According to Web Worker Daily this is the formula and steps:
1. Keep it together.
2. Don’t stop.
3. Have a plan.
4. Get it going.
5. Push past roadblocks.
For myself, I need to just knuckle down and push forward to get things done. Sometimes just getting a snack, […]

iGTD-GTD app for the Mac

Saw this app this week (maybe last?) for GTD on the Mac:
It seems there’s more Getting Things Done inspired software packages out there than there are Flash games littering the web. It’s understandable; GTD has become the geek mantra for productivity, and finding the right tool to suit your GTD needs is like searching for […]

Can dictation software help focus and stop multitasking-and get more done?

Suw Charman wrote on Corante earlier this month that multitasking is as bad as procrastination.  Essentially we really all know we can’t truly multitask…
I’m not sure that this is really new news, though. Who, deep down, hasn’t pretty much known that multi-tasking is a con? We’ve known for years about the state of flow, where […]

EverNote 2.0 and Evernote Outlook Extension Beta Released

I’ve been testing EverNote 2 beta for some time now, just a little while ago (last week I think), I got a ping that EverNote 2 was final and I should download the new version (actually throughout the beta period I received notices to update, which I very much appreciated).  Here a portion of the […]
