Me On UsesThis.com


It’s a pretty cool blog, they ask people from different walks what their productivity setup is.  I am a control freak when it comes to my hardware/software.  I have always relied on Linux and other free software because of the low-level control it affords and I run in fear every time our IT department offers “support” for the few pieces of commercial software I use.  Recently though I just don’t have as much time to get my hands dirty with rolling my own, so to speak, and Apple hardware with its out-of-the-box beauty and Unix under the hood has been a good compromise for me.  In the interview I talk about the advantages of running your own mail server.  Email, particularly “selfies” (not that kind), is an undeappreciated organizational/productivity tool.
