I am as Luddite


"I admit it; I’ve been on personal computers since 1979 (my first, a TRS-80,
my latest a Mac Intel Mini), and on Palms since 1999 (my first a IIIxe, my
latest a Treo 650). I live and breathe the internet, and would never think of
doing something so crude like checking the weather by sticking my hand out of a
window. I’m the guy who always saw the Borg as heroes instead of villains; the
guy rooting for the machines to win in the Matrix.

And yet, when it comes to my implementation of David Allen’s “Getting
Things Done,” I am as Luddite as it gets; my entire system consists of a black
Moleskine notebook, a felt-tip pen, and not a single other thing. And this
drives my friends crazy, needless to say; because being the otherwise tech guy I
am, most of my friends are gearheads too, and simply can’t understand why I
would eschew technology when it comes to this particular subject. And so I’m
always receiving this piece of software from them, and that Firefox extension,
and that other Palm app, that I am constantly assured will make my GTD
experience that much more efficient and rewarding."

    Hey, thanks for mentioning my little guest entry at Slacker Manager this weekend! I’m a BIG fan of Moleskine, and was glad to read about the recent acquisition. Please keep up the good work!

  2. Hey this is great! I stick to my moleskin and pens too! Check out this webinar that we recently did with David Allen for some more tips on GTD: http://bit.ly/bOyk1o
