The end of control and lifehacking.

Apologies for the lack of updates.

Very busy at this end doing some training in digital marketing with E-Consultancy and applying for jobs.

Here are a couple of highly recommended lectures, both filmed at Google HQ.

The first is from Gerd Leonhard, author of Media Futurist one of my favourite blogs on the fragmentation of the media. This lecture is informed by his forthcoming book, The End Of Control.

This lecture is by David Allen, on his Getting Things Done principle. This is one of the most influential productivity frameworks around at the moment. If you care to cast your eye on any of the numerous lifehacking sites and blogs you'll see Allen's name constantly cropping up. Since taking on a few of the GTD principles and related web apps I feel a lot more productive, even with an increasing amount of tasks to action and complete.
