Fighting the Overwhelm Monster

From a reader -

Just a thought - You probably get several requests for advice, inputs etc. Do you not get overwhelmed?

Indeed, my email/people contacting me volume has gone up massively a lot. Like, a whole lot.

Do I get overwhelmed? Well, I reckon there's two things people usually call "overwhelmed" -

1. A short term overwhelmed feeling, like when you've got to do 6 hours of things, but you've got a flight in 3 hours.

My Thoughts on Google Chromebook

On David Paul Krug

So for the last few weeks I've been using an Acer Google Chromebook as my primary work machine. Its fascinating. I'm not one to usually write reviews, or ponder my technology much. What you have is a very simple machine and it was only $217 dollars including tax. Its super lightweight takes literally no time to boot up and as long as I'm using the internet it's an absolutely great device. Negatives are image editing. I did a little image editing on my previous machine and I just can't do it on this machine. That's not neccesarily a bad thing. I should have been outsourcing that part of my web development a long time ago to focus on what I do best. And that's what this machine is all about. It forces me to focus on what I do best. 

Write content. 

I actually plan to get a ChromeBox with a big monitor when I finally make the transition to desktop working next month. I love the simplicity and minimalism of the Chromebook and for someone that works 95% on the web these devices are simply amazing!
