David Allen is Lazy

Because David Allen is a “procrastinator”, we’ve had the privilege of seeing the results of his research into “how to get from here to there easier”. He’s always been about improving process, and I’ve found that that has become a priority in my life as well, figuring out how to improve the processes in my life.

I’ve started reading Getting Things Done, but never finished it. I also have procrastinated in reorganizing my life to follow his principles. But I’m also at a turning point in my life where I do want to purge all the things in my head and write them down somewhere so that I don’t think about them all the time.

Get a little insight into David Allen’s process with this very informative little video. It’s actually 30 minutes, but watch a couple minutes. It may help.

Can Wozniak Make a Cup of Coffee?

I came across a short clip of Steve Wozniak at Fast Company talking about how intelligent computers are getting and how much they can teach and influence from an early age these days.  But there are still strides to take in getting computers to fully interact with and understand humans and the aspects of our environment and lives that are interpreted through sensory perception and experience in life.

This clip is nothing mind-blowing and doesn’t talk about anything specific.  It just reflects on where the internet and computers have brought us and poses the question of how long will it be before computers can really interact with humans and fully understand its surroundings.

Tribes: Please watch

This is a great video about “tribes” and the different kinds. It is very insightful and inspiring. It also pointed out to me what I’m struggling with myself, and where I want to get to. Please watch this and give me your thoughts!

B&H Event Space Videos!

I’m probably late to the game here…. but, I got a B&H email today and saw that they have videos on their site!  I love this store, while most people I know have grown to hate the commotion that goes on there.  Thought this could be a good resource for my family members that are into photography, as well as anyone else looking for some tutorial videos and useful advice.
