Accessing the group Edmodo Using Evernote for GTD I use notebooks in a completely different way for GTD. I have notebook stacks for the organizing categories describe best in Making it All Work: inbox, incubating, outcomes, reference, and support. Not everything about GTD is actions. Filing and organization is part of it. So in ToDo, I can restrict my search to Context:@Computer, AoF:Work" and be completely focused on work I can do at the computer. The distinction between support and reference is VERY important to this way of working. I have to say, I'm completely with GrumpyMonkey on reducing the number of notebooks.

5 Ways to Supercharge Your Laptop For Under $100 | Notebook Upgrades Whether you have a 4-year-old notebook or a shiny new system you bought yesterday, you can dramatically improve your PC’s performance and productivity value for less than the cost of a nice dinner out.

When let loose, it can distance us from the important tasks of the profession like planning, grading, and developing ourselves professionally. If we are disciplined, though, email doesn't have to be a beast of burden -- we can use it as a weapon of efficiency, making us more frequent communicators with parents and administrators, more effective record keepers, and more focused in our growth.

To make the mundane stuff exciting. Now to the real stuff. Among the other bazillion things it can be used for, people have been using Evernote as a GTD tool. The first attempt was a disaster; in fact, the project was given up three or four days later. There are quite a few tutorials, rants and forum posts in the interwebs on how people set up GTD in Evernote successfully. One thing to keep in mind is that you’d have to make maximum use Tags and Saved Searches in Evernote for this. For reminders (ticklers, in GTD slang), I’m using FollowUpThen.

Shorter Oxford English Dictionary Viralité : Schémas de propagation des contenus sur les différents réseaux sociaux Y’a-t-il des mécanismes et des schémas clefs pour la diffusion et la propagation de contenus sur les réseaux sociaux ? Une forme de recette magique qui garantit la viralité d’une opération ? La réponse n’est pas si évidente ! Gnip, une société d’analyse et de traitement de données en provenance des réseaux sociaux a tenté d’apporter plus de lumière à ce sujet, en procédant à quelques analyses, dont je vous partage les principaux résultats.
