Fresh Lime Soda episode 8: What on Earth is Mornington Crescent?

This isn’t getting any better, is it? Well, better late than never: Fresh Lime Soda, episode 8. (Gosh, we did this on the 3rd August…)

  • video is easier and more entertaining
  • what the heck is this Mornington Crescent thing? (the game on Twitter, blogged by Suw and Lloyd)
  • delusions of privacy: private and public Twitter feeds; ORG-discuss mailing-list archives
  • permanence of digital media (teenagers, adults, and nekkid pics!)
  • “breaking down the walls between the silos of our lives”: Facebook as a business networking service?
  • social network fatigue and contact groups (note, though, this feature has been announced for Facebook) since we discussed this; we need Structured Portable Social Networks
  • centralizing e-mail in GMail and multiple inboxes (Suw might like Xobni)
  • the psychology of e-mail: subtle differences between “inbox” and “archive” (and a sprinkle of GTD — check Merlin Mann’s Google Tech Talk about e-mail)
  • what will I do tomorrow? Suw’s “campaign to get more done” and Steph’s nine to twelve
  • keeping track of time whilst watching Sky News and answering e-mails

Fresh Lime Soda episode 5: Dragon, multitasking

Finally, after a long wait due to our joint inefficiency in getting this podcast ready for public consumption, we are proud to present episode 5 of our favourite podcast, Fresh Lime Soda, in which (this time) everything is related. (Recorded on April 25th, 2007, but don’t say it too loud — we don’t want people to know just quite how slow we are.)

Show notes:

  • Dragon NaturallySpeaking: dictation speed and recognition issues
  • correcting mistakes in Dragon (impromptu tutorial) — ends around 10:20
  • multitasking: can dictation help you focus? (Web Worker Daily: Your Eyes Want to Multitask. Resist!)
  • tinnitus is in the brain; multitasking is like visual tinnitus
  • WriteRoom, choosing your interruptions
  • how Think works
  • multitasking and guilt – the expectation of instant availability
  • how to change – think about the process not the end result
  • managing interruptions: closing e-mail windows, Google notifier, e-mail notification in Adium, Twitterrific
  • back to the flow state through dictating (and maybe going to the gym?)
  • guilt and making time for blogging
  • reclaiming your blog, and the first-draft syndrome (really shitty first draft: Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott)
