Productivity

A topic by Tony Ennis

  • "Small batches is favorable compared to large projects that are taken over into the next round."

  • Article was useful for sparking ideas but not much real insight as the title promised.

  • Most words have tons of redundancy. See also: The Bit Player.
  • Vasili's hack - create a large library of shortcuts. E.g "wd" instead of "would".
  • Seems to be working for him. I'm very interested to try it out.

but the main argument is that productivity and collaboration have always been handled as two separate workflows:

We started with individual files that we sent back and forth via email
Then Dropbox came along and enabled collaboration within documents, but communication about these docs remained a separate channel
Slack wants to become the central communication channel for all productivity apps
