OSX inventories, tips & hack collections

I love hearing how other people have set up their OSX Macs and learning about which programs they like to use for various tasks. I’m putting together a (very long and growing) profile of my own, but until that’s finished, I wanted to point to a few folks I’ve bookmarked who have posted great software and setup inventories as well as smart tips for workflow and productivity hacks. Here’s a few I like.

If you know of more good personal inventories and tip collections, post a link to it in comments or send a trackback ping to this post (please definitely don’t use comments to provide your inventory). I’ll look at all of them and add links to particularly good ones above.

Secret goal: make this post a one-stop-shopping link for people who want to quickly ramp-up on “what’s out there” in the OSX world that they might not know about, with a focus on how one given person has put it all together.

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. »
