Merlin at NC Conference; Discount for 43f readers

Important update: 2006-11-15

The Working and Living Life Smarter Conference, announced below, is being rescheduled to a TBD date next year. Registrants have been notified and have received refund info, but you should feel free to ask any questions to either the conference’s organizer, Kay Ethier (sales at aboveandbeyondlearning daht com), or me. 43 Folders will update when the new dates are announced.

So sorry for the change! I apologize for any inconvenience this change has caused and hope that you can still make it to the rescheduled conference next year.

WORKING AND LIVING LIFE SMARTER 2006 (43 Folders Discount)

Next month, I'll be speaking at the Working and Living Life Smarter Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. I'll be doing two talks that should be a lot of fun for 43F fans. And -- lucky for you interested folks, there's a discount afoot, as well.

In "Life Hacks & Knowledge Work," I'll be talking about the ways that bit-twiddlers, designers, and other first-world victims of "The Black Box Career" can apply modest fixes to the problem of self-management. In "Inbox Zero," we'll be looking at the tactical solutions for getting email under control that I laid out in the 43F series of the same name.

If you're an East-coaster who will be in the Research Triangle area in late November, I encourage you to consider coming to the conference. The keynote speaker is the very talented Dan Millman, author of the book Way of the Peaceful Warrior.

The conference promoters have extended a discount for 43 Folders readers that lets you register for $109 ($90 off the rack rate).

I'm really looking forward to my first NC visit in a long time, as well as getting to see Dan and the other folks speak. If you do go, please grab me and say hi.

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. »
