Back to Work #364: The New Fudge

February 20, 2018 at 4:00PM • 1 hour 24 minutes

This week, Dan and Merlin talk a little too much about Harry Potter, but also manage to cover some other media properties as well as the shockingly limited options for British casting. Dan has a new task management app, and Merlin decides to give it a spin too. The need for help from the jackals who make Cash's iPad app is escalated.

In a somewhat classic style, the conversation moves to considering Big Issues around work, friction, modality, usability, and apps for pound-sign productivity.

Twitter, its apps, and its perplexing (lack of?) company direction are discussed. Merlin has something like a razor for this.

Dan is told that he is upset.

Hosted by Merlin Mann & Dan Benjamin.

What’s more important to you, good or different? Also, a couple interesting items around copyright and how others can or can’t share your images. Plus, preserving Disney cels and documentaries about William Eggleston and Ansel Adams. Thomas Struth is our Photographer of the Week.
