Why do I spend more time trying to GTD than GTD?

September 29th, 2006 2 comments

So, like many others in the “knowledge worker” biz, I have terrible problems organizing my time. It often feels like I spend 90% of my life in front of a computer, and that 50% of that time is devoted to wondering what to do next. This is all complicated by the fact that I try to divide my computerized existence into a few different modes — job mode, art mode, relax mode, personal-improvement mode, etc.

Enter GTD, which you can google if you’re up to it. Check out 43folders for lots of articles on the subject. No, I never read or even bought or even saw David Allen’s book, figuring that I seem to teach myself everything else, why not this?

More updates

September 16th, 2006 No comments

Just a quick note that I’ve been steadily posting photos on my flickr page. Give them a look-see if you care to.

The projects area of the bootsquad website has been slowly filling out, with lots of excerpts of newer work. I’m still missing some documentation of a couple of projects, like some work I did with Paulo Raposo, but I think it’s forgivable. I’m going to begin posting excerpts of the music I’m working on, once I feel like it’s not too embarrassing to do so. I’d like to hook up with a designer and do some animations for a DVD, but it’s a little early to make plans – not until the sounds are a bit more fleshed out.

After 3 years of inactivity and probably close to 7 years of no design updates, the site has finally gotten a little bit of a facelift, and some new content. Some old content is gone, but that’s how it goes. I’ll be uploading more stuff in the coming days, but for anyone who is interested in seeing what’s been going on over the past couple of years, there are finally some excerpts of work there.

My life in pictures

September 10th, 2006 No comments

I’ve started taking pictures again. After a lot of soul-searching, I ended up picking up a weird little digital camera from Ricoh. Beautiful wide-angle lens, no zoom. Takes crazy-good pictures and allows a tremendous amount of manual control. It’s gotten nothing but shit reviews from the powers-that-be, because it’s expensive and has a lot of noise in the dark. On the other hand, you can leave the shutter open for 3 minutes if you need to. And the noise looks pretty good – they seem to have shaped it somehow, so that it resembles film grain.

Anyway, the gear hound in me just wanted to mention it. I got a flickr account and have started posting my stuff there. If you want to see what talented photographers can do with this little camera, check this out.
