Video: Merlin's Time & Attention Talk (Improvised Rutgers Edition)

Audio (mp3): "Merlin Mann - 'Rutgers Time & Attention Talk'"
This is a talk I did at Rutgers earlier this month. I kinda like it, but for a weird reason. Something something, perfect storm of technology Ragnarok, and yadda yadda, I had to start the talk 20 minutes late with no slides. Nothing.
So, I riffed.
And, I ended up talking about a lot of the new stuff you can expect to see in the Inbox Zero book—work culture, managing expectations, the 3 deadly qualities of email, and one surprising reason email's not as much fun as Project Runway.
Some people liked it. I think. I liked it. I hope you do, too.
Here's the slides I would have shown. ;-)
Many thanks, again, to my great pal, Dr. Donald Schaffner, for bringing me in for this visit. I had a great time and met some fantastic, passionate people. Much appreciated.
Hey—know anybody who should hear this talk? Hmmm?
I’ll bet. Lucky you, you can hire me to deliver this or any of my other talks to the time- and attention-addled people you work with as well.
Current topics include email, meetings, social media, and future-proofing your passion.
Drop a note if you have an upcoming event where you think we two might be a good ﬁt.
Apologies—my friends at Rutgers (inexplicably) have placed this video under lock and key. Fortunately, I have a lock-picker called Firefox. Samizdat video available soon...
Yay, fixed! Many thanks to my hero, Jesse Schibilia.
