To be honest, I’m not that comfortable talking about myself, so here are a few things about me that don’t fit nicely on a CV, or that I think are just interesting.
I’m a big fan of the internet, so I spend a lot of time reading, learning and sharing (hopefully) useful and interesting information. Here are the places you can find more about me, what I’m interested and what I’m sharing.
I also try out a lot of online services, and some of them I find very useful and continue to use on an ongoing basis.
Google Reader is the nerve center of my research and curation practice. I subscribe to nearly 400 feeds covering financial services, business, science and technology, and some fun stuff such as food. Part of what makes this tool so valuable is the consistency between using my Mac, PC and iPhone to keep up on the latest wherever I am.
I really like the way TripIt helps me keep track of my travel, accessible from any browser, a handy iPhone interface, and a calendar feed pumped in to Google Calendar, I rarely miss a flight or forget where I’m going.
Evernote provides me with the memory I just don’t have. The free account is excellent, but I choose to go with the paid version, which is a very reasonable price. The fact that my information is available to me on my Mac, PC, iPhone and any web browser is invaluable. I’ve come to uploading darn near everything to Evernote as I can always find it in an instant, from wherever I am.
