How Twitter Saves Me Time…Really

Recently I received an email from the marketing folks wondering what it was that made me bookmark sites, and what it was about my home page that made me set it. I had never really thought about how I used bookmarks before, and definitely not why I set my homepage, I just used them.

A Designers Creative Toolbox

I recently had an old friend ask me if I still did graphic design. After a little discussion, a simple question was asked… “So what software do you use to do your designs?” Instinctively I started to rattle off a list of the software I use, pretty much as I would answer a twitter feed with a fellow tech geek. I assumed a sentence explaining what I did in each one would suffice, but quickly realized that it takes a lot more thought to really explain it. Just because it's second nature to me doesn’t mean someone else will “get it.” There is a reason, after all, that they asked the question in the first place. About half-way through the explanation, and with this epiphany fresh in my mind, I just stopped and asked him if I could get his email address so I could put some links together for him.
