Back to Work #249: A John Nash Moment

December 1, 2015 at 2:00PM • 1 hour 49 minutes

TOPIC: Personal Crazy Walls

This week, Dan and Merlin start by covering a lot of things that you might actually be thinking of.

The meat of the episode focuses on a listener question about deciding what things go where—leading to a pretty nerdy exegesis of Notes vs. text files, reminders vs. task managers, and where stuff goes vs. where it probably should go.

Hosted by Merlin Mann & Dan Benjamin.

On Taking Pictures #188: A Facsimile of a Facsimile

December 1, 2015 at 11:30AM • 1 hour 26 minutes

This week, we discuss a terrific NPR article on how people prefer to consume and contextualize information. It may offer some insights into how we as creators present our own work and how and to what degree a given audience may respond. Also, what do you do when what’s popular isn’t the way you see? Do you try to bend your own aesthetic to fit in, or stay in the familiar and let them come to you? Plus, we tease up a few items for next week, so be sure to check the show notes. John Chiara is our Photographer of the Week.

Hosted by Bill Wadman & Jeffery Saddoris.
