Merlin’s weekly podcast with Dan Benjamin. We talk about creativity, independence, and making things you love.
Today through Saturday: Merlin's Advanced OmniFocus Demo (MacWorld Booth #760)
Merlin Mann | Feb 11 2010
I'll have a more proper Monthly Pimp on-deck here soon, but -- time being of the essence here -- I wanted to make sure and extend an invitation for something I'll be doing in town today.
If you're one of my nerdy band of brothers who's in San Francisco this week for MacWorld, please do come visit me between 1:30 and 2:30 (today, Friday, and Saturday), at the giant, glistening, Oz-like Omni Group booth (#760).
As below (via), I'll be blowing minds and curling shorties with some of the most advanced-level, post-doc OmniFocus fu that I know. And, as is my wont, I'll also be sharing some of the deeper mojo that explains why OF was built the way it was (read: why it's so [ugh.] 'complicated'), and how you can choose to leverage that functionality in building a personalized and friction-free workflow. And, yeah, while I'll certainly be touching on the connections with GTD, the big focus will be on thinking about how to support that phrase Ethan and I came up with so many years ago:
Love that. Pretty much sums up my take on the whole productivity game in one sentence.
Me? I'll be easy enough to recognize today -- I'm the one with the throwing stars in my gi and the sandalfoot pantyhose1 on his head.

Merlin Mann: Advanced Secrets of the Omnifocus Ninja
Thursday through Saturday afternoons from 1:30-2:30pm, Merlin Mann (43 Folders, MacBreak Weekly, You Look Nice Today) will stealthily rappel into the Omni Group’s booth (#760) to demonstrate the arcane and deadly methods of the OmniFocus Ninja. Long thought by many to be an elaborate myth or hoax, these ancient productivity moves unlock the hidden power of Omni’s award-winning task management app.
Hope to see you there!
Come. Love. Booth. Okay?
And, yes, I the Titular Ninja also really hope to see you and your neckbeard in ole 760 today.
Because, seriously? Don't be that guy who hangs back and doesn't come up and say "hi" like a person. You must introduce yourself and high-five or shake hands or take a picture of us frenching or whatever. I don't want to see a bunch of toots about how you almost came up. Don't be that Lizard Brain guy, right? Exactly.2
