This is a blog about being a more productive academic. First and foremost, it is about using your computer smarter, smoother, more elegantly, and more efficiently. It is about software and techniques that allow you do do the most common things (writing, presenting, working with email, maintaining calendars)  faster and easier. It is also about software to do things you may not be yet doing (project planning, task management, timing your activities).

Even though it is mostly about software, sometimes I write about processes or ‘workflows’ which really go hand in hand with using Mac and help us to become more productive.

Enjoy reading!

    Love your blog! Quick note: Not sure if i’m the only one, but this site — likely the “snowflake” animations in particular — spike my CPU usage to 30-40% minimum and holds at that or higher rate as long as this browser tab (Safari) is active. Perhaps you can disable the animation? Thanks! =P

    Very helpful blog. I have been using Macs for 24 years. Find the same walls of frustration that you encounter, especially the Powerpoint-itis that invades both corporate and academic communities. Excellent resources and tips. Thanks
