Dan Benjamin’s “The Conversation” – Ep 11, No Regretsjquig99

Fri, 23 Apr 2010 14:48:03 +0000

Dan Benjamin asked me to be on his show, “The Conversation” as a guest with Merlin Mann. Yep – the guy that wrote this, which is still my favorite written essay , online or off, ever. We talked about the iPad, Twitter plagiarism and other sundry things – and it was fun and a real rush […](image)

Thu, 23 Jul 2009 14:23:24 +0000

Two of our common loves are: 1) Anything Apple-related, and 2) Small, smart applications that run intuitively and unobtrusively. To this end, and adding yet another RSS feed to my overworked Google Reader, Patrick has started Minimal Mac - a site " inspired by a clean, uncluttered, distraction free computing experience" (I paraphrased).(image)

I'm not talking about the big picture here - this is not about the election, the economy, etc. While this may have been the catalyst, I don't care. This here is about about personal change.(image)

TaskPaper 2.0 Releasedjquig99TaskPaper

Mon, 01 Dec 2008 05:30:53 +0000

One of the most popular posts of 2008 on this blog was the one I wrote on TaskPaper in February. So I was excited when I was notified by a comment here that TaskPaper 2.0 was out. What I love about TaskPaper is that it's a truly simple application that lets you get things done and out of the way quickly (and without a lot o "system"). It also is formatted in text, so any text editor on any platform can be used to edit these lists.(image)

I’ve been using Bare Bones Yojimbo for over a year now – I’ve enjoyed using it and it’s really fit into my workflow – especially when the script that sent URL’s to Pukka (my Del.ic.ious client) and to Yojimbo, worked (it’s been broken since the last Pukka update).
