introducing digitalfacilitation.net

Back in February, my dear friend Fred Lakin gave me a delightful “job warming gift” to celebrate my new post at The Grove: he registered the domain digitalfacilitation.net in my name. Wasn’t that sweet? Then I was so busy settling in that I didn’t get it set up… until this week. Since I’m barely managing […]

iPad as a touchscreen interface for your computer

Yesterday, I did something really wild. My usual computer setup is my laptop with a larger external monitor as a second screen. Yesterday, I added a third monitor to my setup: my iPad. I dragged some application windows onto each of the three monitors. Whoa. I also set them up to mirror each other. Then […]

cleaning chart images in Photoshop

I get asked a lot how to clean up chart pictures in Photoshop, so this post is probably way overdue. I learned this process from David Sibbet and I’m just passing it along. There are lots of other ways to do this; this is just one method, and it happens to use Photoshop. Some of […]

omg omg omg Xobni and Gmail!

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to the private, very secret alpha of Xobni for Gmail. I used to use Xobni for Outlook, but ever since I switched to Gmail I have been sadly Xobni-less. (Never heard of Xobni? Learn more about it, and about my fortunately unfounded fears that the company would […]

a paintbrush for the iPad!

Just a quick little Friday note to share a neat tool that I’ve started using recently: the Nomad Brush for the iPad. My friend Keene saw it first and told me about it, and naturally I had to check it out. My initial review is that it’s very cool for painting and drawing. I still […]

visual notes on the iPad

Author’s note: I can’t help but be aware that this post rambles a bit. I have inserted handy headers in bold so that you can skip right down to the bits that interest you. Backstory I’m hanging out in YVR, waiting for my very delayed flight back to SFO, and reflecting on the whirlwind that […]

do what you love, support a good cause

A few weeks ago, I spoke at the Mt. Diablo Chapter Meeting for the ASTD (and I had a great time and a lovely dinner, I might add). Not long after that, I got a note saying that they are doing fundraising for their annual meeting. The thing that caught my eye is the system […]

Prezi, all grown up

My inbox this morning contained a message from the creators of Prezi, the “zooming presentation editor,” saying that Prezi is out of beta and just about to go public. Yay! I went back to my previously created Prezi about the 2009 Horizon Report to see if the download is working, and indeed it is! I […]

um… what?

My mom just tipped me off to the new search engine that was released Monday (yes, I’ll admit it, my mom got the drop on me) called Cuil. Say: cool. Yeah, that’s a problem right there for those of us who don’t speak Gaelic (sorry, Dad). There’s a neat little story in the FAQ that […]

only the good die young

Microsoft is trying to buy Xobni. Xobni is a fabulous little tool that works with Microsoft Outlook. In fact, I’d phrase it differently. Xobni is a fabulous little tool that makes Microsoft Outlook work. You know that useless search that churns and churns and doesn’t turn up anything remotely useful in the first fifteen minutes? […]
