Life Hacks Live: Cory's Notes

Life Hacks Live

Cory has posted his excellent notes from our talk at ETech today.

Danny: I had a TV show in deep cable called 404 NOT FOUND. We obsessed with the segues, “That was a cold way of chilling your computer and another cold thing is penguins and now Linux” — we used to obsess about these.

The good thing that came out of this was before commercials, my co-presenter Dave Green would turn to the camera and say, “And now, a few short films about capitalism.”

And now a few short presentations about Life Hacks. I’m using a 10 minute timer to ensure that I talk as fast as possible.

Josh: It's worked out very well...


It's worked out very well so far. I've only got moderate RSI issues, but back in November, I tried my hand at NaNoWriMo and two weeks in my hands/wrists pretty much locked up. I took a flyer on the Touchstream, getting one for my home computer, and it started to help so I picked up a second one to use at work (I also switched over to a Dvorak layout at the same time), In a week my wrists were back to normal.

Not having to reach for and use a mouse (notorious wrist wreckers) was a big, big help. They might look to be expensive, but I feel they're worth every penny (and if it doesn't work out for you, they have very good resale value on ebay).

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. »
