Smart Habits

We can use the standard PIM software (e.g. I admit that I’m not patient. While this has it’s faults, I use it to drive certain behaviors that are positive. For instance, I’m almost an obsessive optimizer in travel. I try to minimize my luggage (I typically travel out of just an expanded briefcase for trips of around 3 days), and similarly the amount of times sitting in lines. And I use apps to try to find the best places to eat in airports and around wherever I’m staying. App use is one of the tools we have to accessorize our brains. meta-learning mobile

PIM 33

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

This sounds a lot like a personal learning environment, personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal work and learning environment (PWLE) and PIM. I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? What should be in your tool set? What are the most important methods to adopt in addition to the tools? Should twitter be part of your tool set? So, here goes. What is a Tool Set?

As a Palm fan (simplicity, solidity, great story about it’s design), the Centro was appealing, having full PIM (notes & ToDos as well as contacts and calendar), cut/copy/paste, a real keyboard, lots of apps, etc, but the browser’s weak, and no GPS or wi-fi is kind of a bummer. And, yes, I know that the iPhone 3G does not have full syncing PIM yet, nor copy/paste. I found out that where I’m going this week didn’t have coverage by Sprint. At first I hoped the iPhone was the solution, but it wasn’t quite ready for primetime.Â


iLust? Changing the game

It’s got a moderate suite of PIM, including contacts, calendar, and notes (no ToDos, ahem), and a microphone. Yesterday, in case you’ve been living under a rock, Apple released their take on the tablet computer, the iPad. Steve Jobs has been quoted as saying it’s “the most important thing I’ve ever done.&# And that’s saying a lot. Like him or not, he’s changed the face of our digital lives several times: popularizing the GUI interface with the Macintosh, changing the music market with the iPod, and upending the mobile market with the iPhone.
