I’ve been hoarding links for weeks, saying, “Oooh, I’ll write a neat blog entry about that,” or “My witty rejoinder to that one will be priceless.” But, not, because real unabashed productivity got in the way.
So, because I need to clear out my “saved items” bin over at Bloglines, are the things I’ve been clicking past, with abbreviated and therefore much funnier commentary on each.
- “If they allow one belief system to be taught, surely they must also teach others?” LiveScience makes a few suggestions. I think my favorite is the Norse mythology. Think of the dioramas! (Via Preposterous Universe)
- Drek bids farewell for the holidays with the grace and style of a real jerkwad.
- Harry reminded me (twice) to read Michael Marmot’s The Status Syndrome. So noted.
- To Kieran’s list of tools I will add emacs-planner. Now that I’ve been using it for a while, I’ve found it to be a great way to organize projects and tasks. It’s not quite like a leather notebook in the aesthetics department, but it organizes and makes accessible a great amount of information for me. Since most of my productive work is spent in emacs already, it’s a good fit. On organizing, Chris Lott points to Onfolio, which looks sort of interesting, and makes a few comments of his own on GTD.
- Chris also pointed me to a post-mortem of social network sites. I now feel vindicated for having forgotten my password at Orkut and never been back.
Okay, by “much funnier” I mostly meant “short and perfunctory.”
