Your Vanity is Devaluing LinkedIn

I use Twitter every day. Anyone can follow me, and I’ll follow anyone who looks interesting.

Don’t automate your tweets – please!

I’ve not had a good ol’ rant for a while. So forgive me while I indulge myself.

Something that’s always annoyed me is automated Direct Messages on Twitter. So when you follow someone you get a tweet “sincerely” thanking you for following them. Read more »

Doing the To Do

One of the reasons the KashFlow office will never be paperless is because of the many To Do lists to be found on my desk. I’m aware there are plenty of web apps out there for this kind of thing, including Remember the Milk which lots of people rave about. But for me, nothing beats the portability and speed of access of a small notebook. Read more »
