7 Unconventional and “Crazy” Ways to Increase Productivity - Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
"Being productive is one of the phrases we hear over and over again in our day-to-day lives. In some contexts, it means doing work when you’re supposed to. In others, it’s all about cleaning the house during your days off. Whatever your personal definition is, however, we can all agree on one thing: some days, productivity can be as hard to find as a unicorn in a haystack." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet

Quip is now available in Japanese, Portuguese, Turkish, and Russian! I know there are lots of Turkish folks here, so wanted to post on FriendFeed specifically. If you haven't already installed Quip, now you have no excuse :)

That's appropriate. - Todd Hoff
"In the case of the F-35, the short answer is: a lot. Counting all of its suppliers and subcontractors, parts of the program are spread out across at least 45 states. That's why there's no doubt lawmakers will continue to fund the program even though this is the third time in 17 months that the entire fleet has been grounded due to engine problems. In fact, in the version of the defense... more... - Bruce Lewis

I'm really grateful to have teamed up with a PR guy who pays me on time, validates me & my hard work, and who understands when clients are being daft, unreasonable, or both.
His one liners have earned him the title of Roger Sterling, minus the lascivious nature (thankfully). - Corinne L
I call him today to vent about a client who's making us both loopy. Me: I'm two steps away from quitting. Him: Oh no! Me first! - Corinne L
Tumblr question: is it possible to "reblog" from Tumblr to a standard library website? Any chance this could be done automagically? (I want a photo site where I can post images & info. that will automatically update on my library's home page. Instagram isn't it. Maybe Flickr?)
Tumblr has an RSS feed, so you could feed in the entries using an RSS import system. - Joe

Do you have a safe deposit box? Like, one that you set up, not one that your parents set up which incidentally contains items belonging to you.
Yes. It has stuff like wills, deeds, etc. - John Dupuis
I got a good deal on one years ago at the Chase on University Place. I tried to find similar rates on the UWS but had no luck. - Stephen Francoeur
Yeah, it's got a few things in it. I need to put our wills in it. (NTS: get wills.) - Catherine Pellegrino
yes, we keep things like wills and living wills in it. When my spouse was still on a visa, we kept all of her official documents there - it would have been terrifying to lose them in a fire or to burglary, etc. My ex actually kept a relatively large stash of money (a few thousand) in hers. - Sarah
No, but I probably need to put my will into one. Or at least get that extra copy sent to my friend who lives out of state and is the back up executor. - Hedgehog
I preface this by stating flat out I know next to nothing about wills, but how do you get around the chicken-and-egg problem of needing the will to access the safe deposit box to access the will? - Mark Trapp
yes we have one. ^ copy of ... is how you get around. i actually don't know for sure what's in there. documents about our cars and our house and my engagement ring. - Christina Pikas
Yes, what Christina said. We have a copy, our lawyer has a copy, and the original is in the safe deposit box. - Sarah
i got one in the mid-80s, i forget why. later, once i married, we kept our passports and leftover foreign currency and titles and wills and other documents in it. my wife and i decided to ditch it a few years back for what we feel is a better solution for us. - Big Joe Silence
Yep. Stack of cash, extra passports for various nationalities/identities, loaded handgun, microfilm... the usual. - SAM
I used to, then I moved and never got around to setting up a new one but I should've. Since I'm about to move again, I think I will this time. I just need to find a place to replace my good credit union. - Betsy
@SAM: i always knew there was more to you than a ranch and a guitar. time to come in. - Big Joe Silence
Used to and probably should again, not for wills (exc. copy) so much as for other legal documents. - Walt Crawford
yes. I've kept one since I left home. It has original documents (birth certificate, passport, vaccine records, etc.), inherited jewelry and other tidbits of reasonable value, and a meager stash of emergency cash. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Yes, I've had one since my mid-20s, a long time ago. :) Contents include wills, trusts, deeds, titles, passports, vaccination records, marriage license, jewelry, and copies of wills/trusts of relatives that name us as executors. Also contains some of the same for kids who have not yet obtained a box. - Anne Bouey
Nope. I also need to make a will. And get some witnesses to sign my durable power of attorney. - laura x
Christina and Sarah: Aha, makes sense. Thanks guys! - Mark Trapp
Never thought about it. Vital legal documents are in a pocket in my go-bag. Not so useful if fire breaks out when I'm not at home, granted. Should scan and email copies to myself, at least. - Deborah Fitchett
A cemetery worker suggested having important papers placed in waterproof baggies or containers and then placed in the freezer. In circumstance of fire this appears one of the last to be damaged. - Janet

TED Talk 2014 | Ray Kurzweil: “Get ready for hybrid thinking” video now playing | KurzweilAI -
"Two hundred million years ago, our mammal ancestors developed a new brain feature: the neocortex. This stamp-sized piece of tissue, wrapped around a brain the size of a walnut, is the key to what humanity has become. Now, futurist Ray Kurzweil suggests, we should get ready for the next big leap in brain power, as we tap into the computing power in the cloud." - Sean McBride
Turn on the faucet? - Sean McBride
“Kurzweil predicts that in 20 years nano-bots will enter the brain through capillaries to connect us to a synthetic neocortex in the cloud. So if someone walks past you whom you want to impress, but your 300 million modules aren’t enough to come up with something clever to say, all you need to do is tap into the neocortex in the cloud and another billion modules will become available. The future human, says Kurzweil, will be a biological and nonbiological hybrid.” - Sean McBride
Does that sound crazy? Not really -- the dream of biological and nonbiological hybrids is within reach. - Sean McBride
Thanks for the edit. One imagines that you would have the option to manage and filter your connections to a global superintelligence any way you like. - Sean McBride
Re: Big Brother -- we've already been there for years. Snowden opened up a small window on the true state of affairs. Super Google has been around for quite some time, operating quietly in the background, out of sight. - Sean McBride

Do any of y'all use Don't Break the Chain (or an equivalent) to stay motivated?
I did at the beginning of the year, but I wasn't great at it :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, was your difficulty in doing the tasks or in recording them? - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
Doing them, mostly - I think I was trying to track stuff I wasn't going to do every day, and that got frustrating. I think it is a neat idea, I just need to maybe apply it to different things. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm kind of hardcore about it; I use OmniFocus. - Akiva
Akiva, how do you use it? What kinds of things do you track? - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
Everything. Work projects. Stuff I promise Audrey & Toby I'm going to do. Shopping lists. Music I want to listen to on Spotify. Any little task or plan or whatever comes to mind, no matter how big or small, goes into OmniFocus and I do reviews every Friday to keep on top of everything. It's worth every penny and syncs to my iPhone, too. - Akiva

Watched my first fire flies ever last night. Seeing them it would be nearly impossible not to believe in a land of fairy. Spectacular.

The wine is so much cheaper here than at home.
Don't judge me. - Ken Morley
I'll judge you. You know a good a value when you drink it. - Todd Hoff
A $25 bottle here would be like $40-$50 at home. - Ken Morley

Happy birthday, Kevin Fox!
In honor of your birthday, how about the whole FriendFeed team takes today off as a holiday? - Stephen Mack
We at TiVo salute everything you've done in the field of User Interface, so we're taking the entire week off in honor of your birthday! (Note: I do not speak for TiVo. Your mileage may vary. No warranty expressed or implied.) - Brian Johns

Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen
OK. :) - Steven Perez
No reason to give up who you are. - John (bird whisperer)
I know someone will find all this just may take 30 years to find him. ;-) - Mary Carmen
That much effort deserves attention. Most don't put so much work into putting themselves out there. You will do well with what you have written. - Julian

Yup, still a total girlcrush. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Explains my Auntiecrush as well. Love this - and you! - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
