  • Making Connections with Readwise and Obsidian

    One question I’ve been asked a few times is when does building a Zettelkasten System pay off? No, it’s not going to do much for you in the way of new connections you didn’t know were around when you only have a few notes. It’s going to take time to build up notes and ideas, […]

  • My Favourite Fiction

    Expanse: I grabbed this on Kindle and loved it so I bought it again and have read almost the entire series. As I’ve been reading it again and watching the show on Prime, I’ve actually enjoyed characters in both versions. Particularly Ashford in the Prime show. I appreciate him much more than the Ashford we […]

  • The right price for parking isn’t free

    Daniel Herriges at Strong Towns Many of us have a notion that because parking in the public right-of-way is so ordinarily offered to the public for free, that “free” is its natural and correct price. In the case above Herriges is talking about people that charge for parking during the state fair. Parking has a […]

  • The problem isn’t your smartphone

    From Thord D. Hedengren on his dumbphone experiment There are many good things with, and about, smartphones. The problem isn’t the device, it’s our inability to handle it. It’s not just the phone either, the same can be said about the iPad. It’s the apps and the services construed to keep you interested. I don’t […]

  • Should You Use Obsidian for Task Management?

    I know I’ve said before that you shouldn’t use your PKM system as a task manager, but we’re still going to talk about using some of the task management tools available in Obsidian because they do feel like they make sense in my workflow lately. Specifically, is content to manage and someday maybe content I […]

  • How I Use Day Planner for Daily Notes in Obsidian

    When I got started in Obsidian I didn’t find daily notes all that useful, but that changed a number of months ago. I now use daily notes almost every day of the week to keep myself organized and to keep a time log of my day. This video will talk you through how I use […]

  • A Life Lived Remotely by Siobhan McKeown

    I heard about this book when it came out and figured it would be a light read about how to do remote work well. While it does talk about the author’s journey in remote working, A Life Lived Remotely, is actually a much deeper book on many fronts. The goal of the book is to […]

  • Max Tech on M1 iPad Issues

    Good look at the issues with the M1 iPad and iPadOS 14 (and still 15). None of them are in the class I entirely discount when someone complains the iPad doesn’t work like the computer they’re used to. Two weeks into owning the M1 iPad Pro, I like it. No regrets in the decsion since […]

  • Task Managers Make it TOO EASY to Input Tasks

    Jamie Todd Rubin on the ease of entry for task managers. The fact that to-do apps makes it easier for us to record what we have to do is part of the problem. We accumulate more stuff because it is easy to accumulate. The fact that there are market forces driving us to feel more […]

  • Sync Obsidian Settings

    As I said when I talked about how to sync your Obsidian files, you can also sync your settings if you use the Obsidian Sync service. To do this, purchase Obsidian sync then under your sync settings, turn on the sync of your system settings. You can even choose to sync your settings differently depending […]
