Productivity: Effectively Scaling Yourself

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Monday 11th March, 2013

1:00pm to 1:15pm (CST)

As information workers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More blogs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second. Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools and filters to capture what you need, or do you just need to unplug. Is ZEB (zero email bounce) a myth or are there substantive techniques for prioritizing your life on the web? Scott Hanselman will explore the essence of what it means to be truly productive.
