As the quintessential early adopter and a propoent of creative disruption, I never thought I’d find myself saying this: when it comes to messaging, I’m old school.
Sure, email has it’s problems, but it works. The same goes for SMS. Both are ubiquitous - it doesn’t matter what mail client you have or what phone you use, it just works. For everyone.
I've wanted to go "all-usb" with my podcast setup for years but was always held back by the fact that there was no such thing as a "software channel strip" that would work with applications like Skype, Google Hangouts or Zoom.
At one point, I went so far as to hack one together using a combination ofSoundflower (with Soundflower Bed) and GarageBand.
Soundflower is the audio routing software while Soundflower Bed is the configuration tool.
It worked, but the CPU on my 11-inch MacBook Air would max out, making the video capture almost unusable.
I then had an epiphany and decided to go all-USB.
Just. Like. That.
While I have a task list, that I manage religiously, email drives a lot of my workflow.
As a result, I've created a labeling system for my inbox to help me manage my tasks. It's loosely based on David Allen's GTD methodology, but I've adapted it to fit my own needs.
