”What’s 43 Folders?”
43Folders.com is Merlin Mann’s website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.

43 Folders Google Group

Google Groups : 43Folders

I’ve been hearing about the Beta of Google Groups recently and wanted to give it a spin, so I’ve created one for 43 Folders.

Like this site itself, it’s mostly a crazy experiment, but my thinking is that this might be a good place for people to talk about stuff related to the site, help each other out with questions, and generally be able to just share cool tips and tricks.

I can’t promise that I’ll be able to answer all your questions or participate in every discussion, but I will try to read everything and respond when it’s called for. I’ll also be moderating with my usual fair but firm hand, so no skylarking or grabass. ;-)

I’m looking forward to ganking many excellent ideas and links from you guys, so consider joining up or just lurking.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
