Memories of the Mountain State

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I was looking through some old photos of Colorado and found this one I took of some old stone ruins. This is just outside of Nederland, Colorado (a short drive west of Boulder). This was near a fantastic 4×4 trail that nearly made me wet my pants.

Sign in Portland

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

This is a funny picture I took with my phone in Portland. I think this sign is saying “Bicycles, beware of giant Lincoln Logs!”. (Yes, it’s odd to say “picture I took with my phone”…as if it’s always been a normal thing for a phone to do.) -Dave

Organizational productivity

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

With the increasing popularity of productivity gurus such as David Allen and Stephen R Covey and websites such as lifehack.org, diyplanner.com, 43folders.com, and the changing landscape of the digital workplace… …is all this talk of highly effective people and stress-free productivity a fad or here to stay?
