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.
