Video: Merlin Mann - "Time & Attention Talk (improvised)" Audio (mp3): "Merlin Mann - ‘Rutgers Time & Attention Talk’" This is a talk I did at Rutgers earlier this month. I kinda like it, but for a weird reason.
Huffduffed from http://colinmarshall.libsyn.com/43folders_founder_merlin_mann
A conversation with writer, speaker, blogger and student of the creative mind Merlin Mann. In 2004, Mann founded 43Folders, a blog and community focused on tips, tricks, tools and techniques designed to improve one’s productivity, and in late 2008, he took the site in a new direction, toward the habits and thoughts of humanity’s best creators and what can be learned from examining them.
Possible "reserve reading" (listening?) for Back to Work s01e21.
As heard on Back to Work s01e14, here’s the first part of my rock opera about Dan Benjamin. Graciously commissioned by our friends at MailChimp.Tune in each week for the next part of the album. We’re committed to doing four, but, personally, I’m happy doing one of these a week pretty much forever.
"Hey everyone. This week we’re doing something special. This is my one-on-one interview with Merlin Mann of www.43folders.com and www.merlinmann.com. We talk about leaving behind scarcity models, being zen about what we take in and finding the time and mindset to be awesome and do the creative work we are so desperate to do."
Mike Brown from Webstock interviewed Merlin Mann. Well, not so much an interview as a conversation. Ok, so, not so much a conversation as Merlin talking and Mike valiantly saying ‘yes’ and ‘good’ and ‘cool’ on occasion :)
Still, lots of good stuff about Merlin’s workshops and keynote at Webstock; the three desert island albums each would choose; and what it is that Merlin actually does!
Enjoy. And it goes without saying, but we will anyway — we’re really, totally and utterly looking forward to having Merlin at Webstock!
Freud popularised the term, “The Narcissism of Minor Differences”, to describe how adjacent villages—identical for all practical purposes—would struggle to amplify their tiniest distinctions in order to justify how much they despised one other. So you have to guess how much he would have enjoyed design mailing lists. And, Perl.
Truth is, to the untrained (un-washed, un-nuanced, un-Paul-Rand’d, and un-Helvetica’d) outsider, discourse in the design community can sometimes look a lot like a cluster of tightly-wound Freudian villages.
So, how is the role of design perceived by the people who are using the stuff you make? What role (if any) should users expect in the process of how their world is made and remade? What contexts might be useful in helping us turn all of our obsessions into useful and beautiful work?
Can an Aeron chair ever be truly ‘Black’? Will there ever be a way to get Marketing people to stop calling typefaces ‘fonts’? And, when, at last, will the international community finally speak as one regarding the overuse of Mistral and stock photos of foreshortened Asian women?
By leveraging his uniquely unqualified understanding of design, Merlin will propose some promising patterns for fording the gap between end-users and the unhappy-looking people in costly European eyeglasses who are designing their world.
Is there hope? Come to Brighton, pull up a flawlessly-executed mid-century-Modern seating affordance, and we’ll see what we can figure out together. One village to another.
