Going Green with CFL

I just picked up a pack of Verilux compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. The package claims 10,000 hours of “bright, white daylight.” It uses a sixth of the energy of a regular lightbulb. Additionally, it outputs a cool blue color that simulates natural daylight. In an effort to reduce my monthly energy bill, I’m doing […] Read More

Productivity 1.0

Perhaps the most advanced technology, or at least the one that works best for me, is simply good old fashion paper wrapped in leather: the Moleskine. Nothing works better than just having something around for jotting down ideas and putting together thought. I still read the Wall Street Journal, print edition, even though the online […] Read More

Google Notebook

Google is starting to really integrate its 10 million different products. Lately, I’ve been attracted to Google Notebook, which can quickly be used as a GTD tool. I’ve set up my “notebooks” as: inbox (to process) next actions (to do) someday/maybe reference projects When I stumble across something I’m interested in, I simply dump it […] Read More

I Heart Tivo

Tivo is amazing. The company (TIVO) itself, is worthless. I caved in and opted to get a Tivo Series 2 instead of Comcast’s DRV box. The software interface is amazing and it just works period. The benefits are: Season Pass – It records all episodes during the season and changes the recording time if the […] Read More

Atlas Shrugged

The New York Times published a rather interesting article on Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. The 1200 page book I’ve been reading has been inspirational reading to a number of people including Allen Greenspan. Ayn Rand’s philosophy, objectivism, appeals particularly to me because of its applications to free market economics. Further thoughts pending substantial completion of […] Read More

Twitter

I joined the bandwagon and signed up for a twitter account. It’s a way to update everyone on your whereabouts and what’s happening, except 160 characters at a time. Ideally, it’s updated using SMS messages. While it’s too short to really get any message across, if you “follow” another person’s updates, you develop a sense […] Read More

Meyers Briggs Personality: INTP

According to my type test, I am an Introverted iNtuition Thinking Perceiving. INTP types are quiet, thoughtful, analytical individuals who don’t mind spending long periods of time on their own working through problems and forming solutions. They are very curious about systems and how things work, and are frequently found in careers such as science, […] Read More

I Am Not a Tree Hugger

I don’t consider myself a tree hugger. I am not a ultra hippy vegan. I do remember as a child crushing cans, cutting the plastic soda things, and saving every sheet of paper to recycle. Today, I am getting back to my roots and slowly trying to be a better citizen of planet Earth. As […] Read More
