Something interesting is happening over at Merlin Mann’s blog 43 Folders. As many of you will know, the name 43 Folders comes from David Allen’s Getting Things Done productivity system, and Merlin’s blog has a well earned reputation as one of the thought leaders in the productivity sector. But Merlin recently took a break from blogging, and returned to announce a bold change of direction for his site:
R.I.P., Productivity Pr0n
Friends, I’m done with “productivity” as a personal fetish or hobby. There are countless sites that are all too happy to vend stroke material for your joyless addiction to puns about procrastination and systems for generating more taxonomically satisfying meta-work. But, presently, you won’t find so much of that here.
I guess Merlin can expect an angry e-mail from Lou.
43 Folders is Merlin Mann’s website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.
