Dan Benjamin’s “The Conversation” – Ep 11, No Regrets

Posted in Video by jquig99 on April 23, 2010

Dan Benjamin asked me to be on his show, “The Conversation” as a guest with Merlin Mann. Yep – the guy that wrote this, which is still my favorite written essay , online or off, ever. We talked about the iPad, Twitter plagiarism and other sundry things – and it was fun and a real rush to be a part of the show.

If you aren’t following Dan or, you are missing out. Dan has a number of amazing shows, with wonderful guests including Jim Coudal, Jason Fried, Jeffrey Zeldman, Melissa Pierce and Liz Danzico (who has a must read blog, btw). I love that there are 2 fantastic women included in that group.

Watch and learn.

Different Ways to Update Blogs

Posted in 30Boxes, FlipCamera, GTD, Jott, productivity, Video by jquig99 on October 14, 2007

I’m starting to look at different ways to update my blogs. As I my professional life gets more intense, I need ways of updating my web presence that easily integrates into my workflow.

A new medium that I’m experimenting in is video. Last weekend I bought a FlipCamera Ultra. It’s a really small camcorder that can fit into my bag that I can use to do video blog updates on the fly, short interviews and conference transcriptions. And a built-in USB connector and software makes uploading a snap. I’ve been carrying it everywhere and working on how best to use it. I love working in this new medium and I think it’s going to make my updates easier and more frequent.

I’m working on my closeup!

The other thing that is making things much easier is Jott. Since I started using it, Jott has made thing much easier.

Using Jott, I:

– Update my blogs
– Update Twitter
– Create Groups to update many people at once
– Send Jotts to individuals
– Update my 30Boxes calendar
– Update Jott from my desktop.
– Creating reminders and tasks across Folders

I Jott to myself, I Jott to my friends, I Jott to my collegues, I Jott to my blogs. I’m seeing more and more people in my network Jott-ing. Brian Solis at PR 2.0 just wrote a thoughtful post on how Jott impacts his productivity. Glad to see he’s Jott-ing instead of texting-while-driving!

These are two of the services/products I’m using to help me Get Things Done. I’m looking to forward to tracking how these continue to adapt to my workflow.
