Hi. All my current writing is over at Audacious Fox, and I'd love to show you around. Thanks for reading.

Reducing Cognitive Friction

Shawn Blanc:

Computers are great at doing the boring, automated stuff we don’t like to do. So why not automate common tasks (like performing backups of your computer), pre-make decisions for your computer to carry out on your behalf (such as auto-filing certain email newsletters), and generally just find ways to make yourself more efficient?

I think the biggest reason we don’t do these things is because we don’t care. Seriously. In the moment, it seems easier to just continue suffering through our broken and inefficient workflows that it does to take a step back and consider if there’s a better way.

A smart look at some Mac software and workflows that can save yourself time in the long run.
