I love this post from Chris Bowler. In the past 6-ish months, I’ve found myself in a similar mode. I’ve always wanted my task list to be digital. I’ve wanted it available on all of my various platforms synced through the cloud. For a while, I was an avid Things user. I’ve also experimented with Trello (I still use it as sort of a long term “issue tracker”).

But late last year, when I discovered the Bullet Journal system, I decided to dive in. There’s just something about picking up a pen and writing physically that connects with my brain more. I more like I know what I have to do, and I feel more accomplished when I can check something off.

I don’t subscribe religiously to every little bit, but I think you have to find what works for you. I’d like to put more notes and events in to log myself. I’ve also been playing a bit with the Omnifocus 2 beta for keeping track of longer term tasks. But for managing my day to day, having a pen and a notebook has been fantastic.

The original story is here. Linking to Gruber because he links to an Obama quote. This was one thing I thought Obama would nail, and this administration has completely failed us. The FCC is trying to destroy the internet.

I’ve listened to this podcast and then watched the video. It was so good I had to hear it twice. I’d never heard most of these guys before, but I immediately went and followed them on Twitter and on their blogs.

Do yourself a favor. Take an hour and watch.
