Arguing that DRM doesn’t work is, it turns out, missing the point. DRM is working really well in the video and book space. https://web.archive.org/web/20140906214521/https://plus.google.com/+IanHickson/posts/iPmatxBYuj2 Things that continue are working.

Once you can do your old job without even needing to keep a to-do list, then it’s time for a new job.
I’ve been using an email strategy for quite some time now. I make folders for every topic, many with sub topics, and put all the email I receive into them. All the mail I send is also in those same categorized folders. MS Outlook has a handy option that lets you keep reply emails inContinue reading “Email Strategy: Delete”
Once Humana’s vaccine mandate was announced, I had to immediately start searching for a new job. And here I am! Today is day two of my onboarding at Goodwill Industries of Kentucky. Everybody is so warm and friendly. It’s less like working at a corporate, and more like being at a very big church!

Resistance pushes back against documenting through our fear of showing off our dismal status quo. Document fearlessly. If there is a secret on ramp other than the “required” in box, then document it. If there’s three ways of challenging the “final” status, document those. If there is no process to track the work, and customersContinue reading “Document Reality”
The list is a “simple machine” that people use in all sorts of ways. When you start thinking of three or more items, I encourage you to start writing down a list. This way you’re less likely to forget any of them. You’re giving yourself the chance to time shift, by separating the mental effortContinue reading “The List”
