”What’s 43 Folders?”
43Folders.com is Merlin Mann’s website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.

Your 43 Folders wish list?

Thanks again to everyone for their patience with our little team getting the site up. Thanks for everything. BUT! Enough of this self-congratulation.

We got us a hot-rod new CMS and some hard, pipe-hittin’ new members to help make things fun and interesting. So you tell me:

What new features and functionality do you want to see on 43f? If you’re a Drupal fan already, what modules, Views, or general tweaks do you think we’re missing? What would make your visits more enjoyable, useful, and productive?

Not so much looking for bugs (those go here), but do feel free to spill on your mad fantasies for making the site crazy-useful to the productive set.

He lives in San Francisco, does lots of public speaking, and helps make cool things like You Look Nice Today, Back to Work, and Kung Fu Grippe. Also? He’s writing this book, he lives with this face, he suffers from this hair, he answers these questions, and he’s had this life. So far.

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. »
