MattsCuppa Link Roundup for 6-11-2007

Posted by telecommatt on June 11, 2007

More backlogged links! I’m especially excited about Remember the Milk being available offline. Most everyone knows I’m an RTM addict, and I am still convinced it’s the most flexible way to manage your GTD-life. Now, I can “remember the milk” from my PC online, from my laptop in line, and my mobile handset where ever. Sweet!

Firefox Extensions For Bloggers

LifeHack.org has a useful post today with 17 Firefox Extensions That Make Blogging Easy – broken down into Collecting, Writing and Images.

I hate lists like this – I end up spending half my day having to
install and test great new tools which are supposed to make me more
productive but in the short term which are wonderful distractions!

PS: The Split Browser
extension is going to be VERY useful. I quite often wish I didn’t
have to flip back and forth from one tab to another while writing a
post or newsletter in one tab and researching what I’m writing i
another. This is great – why didn’t anyone tell me!

What else don’t I know about?!? What are your favorite Firefox extensions?

Web As Desktop: Remember the Milk gets Gears

The popular online todo list Remember the Milk has paired up with the spanking new Google Gears to offer a seamless online/offline experience for RTM.

Remember
the Milk’s Google Gears integration is really impressive, offering the
entire RTM experience in offline mode—meaning that you can view
your todo lists, add tasks, edit tasks, search your tasks, create Smart
Lists, along with anything else you like to do with RTM. As far as I’ve
seen, RTM is the first popular non-Google app (and the second app
outside of Google Reader) to offer offline access and synchronization
with Google Gears, and it’s done a helluva job. Looking forward to
seeing more of this.

A Final Batch of Productivity Tips

During my mini-hiatus after the birth of my son a few more productivity tips did come through for the Ultimate Guide to Productivity.

They
seem to have stopped at this point so maybe the Ultimate Guide to
Productivity group writing project meme has played out its course.
That’s totally fine. I’ve listed the remaining submissions
below.

You can still submit a post if you’d like – just tell us your best productivity tips!

In
the meantime I’ll start the huge task of reviewing all the posts
again and preparing the much-promised e-book. I can’t give a
deadline at this stage, and as soon as I get a handle on the work
I’ll call for help from others. But here goes nothing!

  1. Tag, I’m It! by Christina Haas
  2. Number 1 productivity tip by Shannon
  3. Productivity: Snooze It or Lose It by Connie Reece
  4. Automation: My Ultimate Guide to Productivity by Alaeddin
  5. Meme Week: My Secret to Productivity by Mark Goodyear
  6. Cutting Out the Bull: Information Overload and Productivity by David Bohl
  7. Fear – The Ultimate Productivity Blocker by Shaboom
  8. Ultimate Guide to Productivity: A Tip the Worx by In The Worx

If I’m not mistaken, this brings our total number of submissions to 137!

I’ll
be posting the full list shortly so there’s a single page to
access all of the great productivity tips. And again, you can keep
sending them in if you’ve got them…

  1. Thanks for being such an active participant in the productivity meme. Did you come up with the cool ninja graphic–or was that Ben?

    The ebook idea sounds like a good one. Definitely count me in for that.

  2. Mark,

    Thanks for the contrib. I only wish that I could take credit for the productivity ninjas- they are cool!
