Luckily, our own Jim Cramer’s here to lend today’s developments a much needed dose of sanity and perspective. And, when we return, Chriss Angel, Dr. Phil, and Flavor Flav join host, Corey Feldman, for a lively discussion of macroeconomics, fluid dynamics, plus 11 surprising new places where hot chicks tell us they love to tan.
To determine within 75% confidence whether you were incredibly frustrated at the time you named a document, project, setting, or client file: check whether the name you chose begins with the adjective, “Fucking.”
John Gruber (DaringFireball.net) and Merlin Mann (43Folders.com) discuss the current state of blogging as a medium for creative expression, weighing the opportunities and challenges of building a thoughtful online presence in a world where everybody owns a printing press. They’ll consider the ascendance of Digg-friendly “problogs” and debate the subtler pleasures of careful writing that reaches smaller, but potentially less “profitable” audiences.
Heard the Season 2 premiere episode of the You Look Nice Today program, entitled, “The Tux Age?” Are, you a fan of scratchy megaphone music, Victrolas, and songs about Baby Butlers? Oh, you, kid! Have we got an offer for you! Take off your hat and strap on your splints!
Here’s the deal: The Fun Bunch is invited to nominate the rock-era pop hit that they’re most itching to hear in its original and proper Old-Timey Megaphone or Edison Wax Cylinder version.
The Talent will choose one of the requests at something other than random, and — well — let’s just say we’ll just make sure that a copy from the archives is located so that everybody in The Fun Bunch can enjoy a free, non-cylinder, MP3 of it.
So! Whaddaya say, Joe? Whaddaya know? Have a smoke! Myah!
But isn’t 43 Folders a “site about ‘Getting Things Done’?”
No, it is not. No more than The Seventh Seal is a buddy movie about hanging out at the beach.
I’m an ardent admirer of David Allen and an occasional evangelist for his excellent work — which work has been unbelievably useful and inspiring to me. Reading the GTD book was nothing short of a revelation to me, and with all due deference and credit, the early success of 43 Folders stemmed largely from my detailed commentary and implementation tips on topics like GTD. No question, I’m grateful to the man on multiple levels.
But, to call 43 Folders, “a site about Getting Things Done” does almost as much of a disservice to my hard work as it does to David’s. And, frankly, how ever complimentary the remark is intended to be, it’s a millstone that I’d prefer not to carry any more.
