Thanks to Phil for the suggestion of adding the approximate time stamp to the pick. Not sure if this is useful or overkill. What do you think?

Picks from MBW 72: Keynote Analysis

No picks on this show, but mixed reactions to the product announcements all around. I did find a new online ad on the New York Times this morning. Kinda funny…

MBW 2008 Predictions? Topic recommendations?


Do you have any predictions or topic recommendations for the MBW crew for 2008?

I’d like to hear a show about the “bad old days” of being a Mac user. I came into the Mac world a little late and only really know OS X.Ã?â??Ã?  Another show of “Mac whines” would be great as well.

As far as predictions, I’ll go out on a limb and say that Scott Bourne will really like the next generationÃ?â??Ã?  iPhone.Ã?â??Ã?  A lot.

How about you?

Here’s what to expect on January 16:

Session Description:

Our “always on” habits (and the technologies that enable them) have left most of us feeling stressed-out, anxious, and perpetually behind on _everything_ we do. We’ve ceded full-time access to anyone who wants it – we drink from a fire hose all day long, then wonder why our lips feel so chapped.

Merlin Mann parts the seas of interruption and procrastination to reveal the emerging skills that are re-defining how we choose to live and work over the next five years.

You will learn – How to begin regaining your time and attention – focusing where it brings the most long-term value to your world.

Who should attend – Whether you’re a stay-at-home caregiver or a startup CEO, you’ll benefit from learning how to build smarter walls and how to make faster decisions about who gets access to your world at any given time.
