Another introduction

Hi everyone, thought I'd make my introductions as I've been lurking for a while, and finding several of the threads very useful.

I'm Claire, I'm a second year PhD student at Oxford, UK (so I'm midway through my PhD in the British system). I got into GTD in December - the "wrong way round" in some respects, by stumbling across 43folders, then buying the book and I'm still not sure I've read the book all the way through in the right order - I keep dipping in and out of it. I have to use Windows because of compatibility issues (I've found switching between Windows and Macs tends to mess around with my data which is collected on Windows machines) so my current GTD system is the trusty Outlook-Palm combination, which seems to work quite well for me - just need to remember to sync every time I step away from the computer.... Did my first proper weekly review on Friday, which took me 3 hours but I'm hoping to get faster if I do it every week! :)

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. »
